Two students receiving Undergraduate Awards

The Undergraduate Awards recognize the outstanding work of first-years, sophomores, and juniors throughout the year. Prizes are awarded in various areas of study, as well as for scholarship and citizenship. The majority of awards are named in honor of notable alumni and faculty, whose enduring legacies continue to shape the College today.

An annual awards ceremony for graduating seniors, known as Senior Assembly, is held separately.
