Each year, the campus center programs and services office coordinates student recognition awards. The recipients of these awards are determined by a committee composed of students, faculty members, and administrators. These awards include "Who's Who," "Silver Key," and "Special Recognition Awards."
Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities is an award given to students either in the junior or senior year. It is based on one's leadership, character, and involvement in college community life. The award is also based on past and present work and service that the student has done to improve the college and its community. Who's Who is a National Award in conjunction with Salem State University. The application and selection process takes place in the Spring Semester. Are you interested in applying? Applications are now available and are due in the Campus Center by Friday, March 1 at 4pm.

The application and selection process takes place during the spring semester.
Special Recognition Awards are presented to members of the senior class who meet the following criteria: involvement within the major area of academic concentration and demonstration of significant involvement in co-curricular activities within the college community.
