SBS Faculty Help First-Year Students
Many SBS faculty, lecturers and TAs were recognized with the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE) Student Choice Award. All recipients were nominated by first-year students because these individuals had a profound influence on them during their first semester.
Nominations were made for a variety of reasons, including: inspiring students to learn; hosting interesting and motivating lectures; going above and beyond to support first-year students; helping students adjust to college; challenging students to reach their full potential, and much more. Congratulations to the following awardees for making college a more meaningful experience for students!
