Outstanding Graduates

Overview

Awarded by the College of Business and NMSU Alumni Association. Every Spring and Fall semester, each COB academic department selects an outstanding student for each of its majors. These are department-level awards for Outstanding Graduates. These Outstanding Graduates are the nominees for the college-level award. The college-level award for Outstanding Graduate is chosen by the COB Faculty Council, who submits the student’s name to the Alumni Association. The NMSU Alumni Association Award is given out the Friday before Commencement day to those outstanding graduates who have demonstrated and have met criteria for scholarship, leadership, and service.
