The 2015 Award Winners
Hundreds of students and more than a dozen organizations received awards at the 2015 Weekend of Excellence for their outstanding work throughout the school year.
About the weekend
Five years ago, when Loyola celebrated its first Weekend of Excellence, hundreds of students took part in the three-day event. This year, more than 1,000 students were featured—and the event ran for four days.
It’s a testament to how far the weekend has come in such a short time.
Created as a way to honor and celebrate student achievements, the Weekend of Excellence showcases the academic, civic, and extracurricular work that Loyola students have conducted over the past year. This year’s weekend, held from April 16–19, included presentations and performances, as well as student award ceremonies and induction into the Maroon & Gold Society.
To accommodate the growing number of participants, the undergraduate and graduate research symposiums were in different locations on Saturday, April 18. The Graduate School symposium was in the Quinlan Life Sciences building and Palm Court; the undergraduate symposium was in the Mundelein Center and Galvin Auditorium.
