The Monmouth University Student Government Association is proud to announce the names of the finalists for this year's Outstanding Student Award. A long list of nominees were selected by the members of the Student Government Association during the spring semester. Each of the nominees were then invited to submit a resume and personal statement to the selection committee. In the end, five finalists were selected from what is always a very competitive and talented group of nominees. During the weeks leading up to Commencement, Monmouth University's faculty, administration, and staff are asked to vote for the nominee who they feel has left their mark by affecting the University through his or her efforts. The winner is then invited to sit on the stage at Commencement with the Platform Party. The finalists for 2016-2017 have been selected and are listed below. We encourage you to take some time to learn more about this year's finalists for the Outstanding Student Award.
