Do student orgs ever get together to celebrate and be recognized for all of the hard work they've done throughout the year?
Absolutely! We get together in May at the Student Engagement Recognition Awards Ceremony and recognize all of the students orgs and individuals that have made a positive impact on the USG community & beyond.  Students get to dress up and after the awards ceremony is done everyone gets to party the night away with a DJ, food, and a sense of accomplishment! We look forward to celebrating with YOU in 2019!
