The Associated Students of the University of Nevada honored its outstanding clubs and organizations in an awards ceremony on April 10 in the Joe Crowley Student Union. Exceptional clubs, club leaders, advisors and programs were awarded for their contributions in bringing enjoyable activities and experiences to campus.
“The clubs and organizations work hard on campus,” said Amy Koeckes, associate director of marketing and media. “They give students the opportunity to get involved outside of the classroom.”
The winners of the ASUN Clubs and Organizations Awards are as follows:
- Club of the Year: Art of Living
- Community Service Award: Circle K
- Program of the Year: Black Student Organization Ball
- New Club of the Year: Latino Research Center Student Advisory Board
- Intra-Club of the Year: Lambda Phi Xi
- Club Leader of the Year: Daniel Hernandez, Delta Sigma Pi
- Advisor of the Year: Christina Sarman, Pi Beta Phi
The clubs and organizations honored in the ceremony have their names engraved in the trophies in the ASUN office. Some organizations, club leaders and advisor winners received cash prizes and plaques.
Clubs, organizations and club leaders nominations were submitted to a committee, headed by Maria Urbina, director of clubs and organizations, for consideration.
The choice may be made even more difficult in the future, as interest in campus events and organizations grows. Of the University’s student population, she believes there are about 2,000 participants in ASUN clubs and organizations.
“The most clubs we’ve ever had was at about 215,” Koeckes said. “I anticipate that number will hit 300 easily in the next couple of years.”
