Last night was the swankiest night of the year in Hollywood — the Oscars! If you spent your night watching who wore what, admiring Lady Gaga’s “Sound of Music” performance, or being slightly disturbed by Neil Patrick Harris in his tighty-whities, you weren’t alone! While we watched as the stars accepted their awards, we couldn’t help but think of the award-winning university that we call home!
We know that we’ve won #1 Regional College in the South, #1 Campus Dining and #1 Student Center in the Nation, but what makes our university award winning below the surface? We asked around campus and found out what awards our students and staff would present to our extraordinary university!
