The 2014 Award Winners
Hundreds of students and more than a dozen organizations received awards at the 2014 Weekend of Excellence for their outstanding work throughout the school year.
About the weekend
Four 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 Loyola 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, which ran from April 10–13, included presentations and performances, as well as student award ceremonies and induction into the Maroon & Gold Society.
To accommodate the growing number of participants, this year’s undergraduate and graduate research symposiums were held in two different locations on the Lake Shore Campus.
“We made intentional schedule and location decisions so as to focus greater attention on the various research in which students are engaged,” said Ann Marie Morgan, co-chair of the event. “This should result in greater exposure for all students.”
