What people had to say: She is one of those people on campus that always has a huge smile and great attitude. She is constantly doing things for CNU and is hardly ever recognized for her service. Julia has made an effort to know and invest in a ton of people on campus and has devoted her time to getting involved on campus.

What people had to say: Jen has been on Habitat stuff for some time and she ALWAYS picks up the slack. Whenever someone didn’t want to do something, forgot to do something, or didn’t do it right she’d be there to pick up the pieces and put it all back together again. She does not complain, keeps a positive attitude, is a team player, and is one of the hardest working people I know. She truly cares for people and tries to serve not only her friends, but also the campus and community in general.
Involvement: VP of Habitat for Humanity (2 years), been on 3 Habitat spring break trips, PLP, member of Rotaract, e-board member of SHRM, and I think does that SBI I thing in the business school where they help businesses in the community fix their business plans and be a more profitable/efficient business. She also held a full-time internship for a year and balanced that with class and didn’t give up her extracurriculars or her other commitments.
What people had to say: Nikki is one of those unique people who always looks for the positive in every situation and never judges people. She also is a servant leader with respect to being a team player and helping encourage and serve the group in ways that are not always noticed. Always calm, positive, and willing to sacrifice to make the group happy. Her passion and attitude are contagious and you are one of the best listeners I know. She always cares for people and is always fun. It makes her an extremely awesome person to be around and a person that this campus has strongly benefited from these past four years and will miss when you graduate!

What people had to say: Chris literally does everything and he sets out to do with willingness and passion. He is looked up to on campus as a leader and have certainly left his mark. He always wants to make a difference not only on our campus, but also in the local community and even traveled to Africa to make a difference. With all he does locally and globally, he is definitely deserving of an award about service and campus involvement.

What people had to say: when I think of someone at CNU who most deserves recognition for service, it’s Nate. He’s one of those people whom I’m not really convinced actually sleeps at night because of how much time, effort, and energy he puts into all the things he does. He truly goes above and beyond in absolutely everything. just a friend, he takes his responsibilities seriously and gives 110%. He also demonstrates selfless service on the reg as well as servant leadership
Involvement: Student Assembly VP, Young Life leader, radio show host or. Student leader in service trips to Newark, N.J. Accepted into the Teach for America program.
What people had to say: Also someone at CNU who most deserves recognition for service. Kathryn, constantly impresses me with how she handles anything and everything that she is faced with. integrity, a commitment to do well, and a commitment to fun (which is essential to success). Whether it’s making a decision, organizing something, forming a plan, etc., she approaches it with a strong set of values and a positive attitude. She also cares for others selflessly and she is constantly looking out for the best interests of those around her. I know that she has contributed so, so much to CNU with her time here, she will be greatly missed here
Involvement: PLP Canon scholar, Habitat for Humanity CNU chapter founder and president, H4H Spring Break Alternative participant and coordinator, Orientation leader, ILA presenter, poster presentation at APEE’s annual conference in Vegas, presenter at VAE’s annual conference in VA Beach
What people had to say: Jeremy is another outstanding student who miraculously balances a bazillion different responsibilities and still carries them all out with care, integrity, and a positive attitude. He also goes out of his way to be there for others. He’s always conscious of how he’s contributing to the betterment of that organization and intentionally goes out of his way to be a servant leader and encourage those around him. I am constantly inspired by how hard he works and how great of an example he sets in all that he does – he adds so much to CNU campus life and I think he is one who deserves recognition for it.
Involvement: RA, a brother and leader in KDR, President of Greek Intervarsity. Also just an individual a student is bound to see most often at CNU events and functions.
What people had to say: anyone on the Captain’s Log may not be the favorite of everyone here right now, but I think that Emily does deserve recognition for the service she’s done at CNU, regardless of the negative consequences that her job oftentimes carries. Emily is a student who chooses what she wants to devote her time and energy to, and then commits to it whole-heartedly. Her main campus life responsibility is the Captain’s Log. I am constantly so, so impressed by what she gives to her Greek organization ASA. She always goes out of her way to be there for others, takes the time to care for all 101 sisters individually whenever she can, and strives to live out values of showing concern for others and carrying herself with integrity. She won the highest award in her sorority because everyone recognizes her as a sister who seeks to selflessly serve ASA and everyone in it. And while this is just a description of what she does in one organization, I’m convinced that she carries herself in the same way in everything else she’s involved in. I do think that she deserves recognition for serving at CNU.
Involvement: Sister of Alpha Sigma Alpha, Editor of the Captain’s Log.
What people had to say: He’s a really solid person who seeks to be a servant leader and care for others intentionally.

What people had to say: Crystal has done SO MUCH for Alpha Phi Omega over the past four years. She has been the president for the past two years and has brought service back to the organization. She has partnered with Hines Middle School and has established an excellent connection between Hines and CNU. She really does have service in her core values and shows this every day. The fact that a service organization is her number one says a lot! She also works at the Welcome Desk of the DSU! And has worked catering and Ferguson Staff in her time here. Attitude goes a long way and she helps create an amazing atmosphere.
Involvement: APO including E-board, serving the university in a variety of positions
What people had to say: Jenn is a member of numerous organizations on campus, but is a more silent type. She needs to be recognized for what she does because she does it in such a selfless way. She has been a member of Alpha Phi Omega for two years, which shows her dedication to service. She is also a member of Campus Activities Board for two years and has really been a “silent inspiration” to those on her committee. She is a motivator for sure, and also double checks to make sure stuff is getting done. She is also a member of Catholic Campus Ministries and has served on the leadership team for that organization. Another student: Jen is awesome and has really done a lot with CCM throughout her CNU career. She led a retreat geared toward freshman in which she did an awesome job coordinating and serving the younger students.

What people had to say: Jett has gone above and beyond the call of duty as a student. He has fought for the rights and benefits of students since day one in a variety of mediums on campus.

He instituted the Safe Ride program at CNU to encourage safer weekends and has one of the best attitudes about adversity Students or Faculty have ever seen.
Involvement: Student Assembly President, Standards Board of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Student Director of Orientation, Founder and Director of the Safe Ride program.
What people had to say: Daniel is one of those members of campus that usually has a cynical attitude and to the casual observer he wouldn’t seem like much of an impact player in the service scene of CNU. He often neglects to talk about all the things he does but Daniel is extremely committed to serving others. He has devoted countless hours into the service of his organizations many of which times he would never talk about. Recognition isn’t big on Daniel’s list, but service is.
Involvement: Best Buddies, Special Olympics, SigEp E-board, Crew Leader, IFC President, Ferguson Fellow, CHECS panel member, 2nd year RA in JR
What people had to say: Carley is an underrated leader on this campus. She is an individual who could turn ANYONE’s day around with one of her infectious smiles. We believe the reason they are so effective is because of how much she genuinely cares about who she is talking with (and that is everyone at CNU). Carley is an incredible individual and excels at everything she does which is evident by the fact that she essentially always invited back for more years of service in whatever she is doing. Anyone who has had the opportunity to work with Carley would certainly approve of this recommendation.
Involvement: ASA, 2 year Crew Leader, RA one year FDA 2 years
What people had to say: Hector is the definition of High Speed and Class in an individual. Not only does he excel at everything he does but he does it all with a certain distinction that is not shared by all of his counterparts. He has a compassion and a care for other people that is unparalleled. His service towards other organizations is unrelenting and it is clear through the way that he treats everyone around him.
