Outstanding Graduate Award

As the New Mexico State University Alumni Association’s highest honor for a student, the Outstanding Graduate Award honors a graduating student from each academic college and Office of International and Border Programs, as well as a master's and doctoral student from the Graduate School. 

All honorees are named Outstanding Graduates by the deans or leaders of their respective colleges and programs. This is a very special honor that carries with it the knowledge that, as outstanding graduates, the recipients were not only marked by achieving high academic standards, but also by a high level of involvement in the community.  These outstanding individuals are leaders, as well as good students. They have demonstrated a tremendous focus on academics; active participation in activities that embrace their leadership skills; and an ability to conceptualize and communicate needed practices for success in their education and personal lives.  

The NMSU Alumni Association hosts the Outstanding Graduate Award Luncheon every semester the Friday before commencement and presents the award to each recipient with family and friends attending.
