The Big Ten Senior awards, which originated between the 1910’s and early 1980’s, were a way of recognizing excellence in the senior class. The Student Alumni Connection, the student organization that sponsors the awards, aims to preserve the traditions of WSU and reinstated the awards in spring 2004.
The Student Alumni Connection is a registered student organization that works to promote student and alumni interaction and continue WSU traditions.
Questions about the nomination or award process can be directed to Patricia Devoe at 335-6901.
