Honors and Awards Ceremony

Each spring, St. Catherine University hosts the Honors and Awards Ceremony to honor student achievement in academics and leadership. The event begins with a reception that includes displays highlighting student award winners' accomplishments. This is followed by a formal program, which allows individual departments and the University as a whole to present awards recognizing student achievement.

Among the many honors bestowed at the ceremony, the University recognizes students through the All-University Student Leadership Awards. These awards recognize students' contributions to co-curricular and academic life at St. Kate's, their growth in leadership roles, and their involvement in campus life.

Student Events

Some of our students’ most beloved campus events are organized through SCA and student organizations, including:

  • The Activities Fair, held each fall, is the best way to learn about clubs to join, upcoming events, and campus activities.

  • The Charity Ball, held each December, raises money for Sarah’s...An Oasis for Women, which provides a welcoming space for women looking for temporary housing, community, and safety.

  • At Handcrafted Holidays, students, staff, and faculty show off their crafting talents and sell their handiwork as holiday gifts.

  • St. Kate’s highlights the year’s student achievement with a reception and formal program at the Honors and Awards Ceremony in early May.

  • The Dew Drop Bop celebration is held on the last day of classes, and features carnival rides, music and entertainment, and incredible food!
