Wednesday, May 4, 2022


The 17th Annual “Sammies” Student Life Awards is hosted by Student Engagement & Leadership to highlight all the great things that our Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), Graduate Student Organizations (GSOs), agencies, student businesses, and student leaders do. The award for Outstanding New Graduate Student Organization is presented to a new GSO that has succeeded in building a solid foundation for the organization to sustain itself for years to come.  

DACSS GSO came highly recommended from the Graduate Student Senate (GSS) for the award and it was our pleasure to recognize the group. We were thrilled to recognize the Data Analytics and Computational Social Science Club as a group that has increased its membership, delegated responsibilities throughout the organization, experienced leadership training, and completed all Student Engagement and GSS requirements,”  said Amelia Marceau, Student Organization Resource Center (SORC) Manager and Sammies Awards contact. The awards ceremony took place on April 20, 2022, in the Student Union Ballroom, UMass Amherst.
