Of-the-Year Awards

NRHH is pleased to announce that we've officially kicked off the 2015-2016 Of The Year (OTY) award process! OTYs have been a K-State tradition for many years, and are our way of recognizing our top student leaders and staff from across campus. Our communities are asked to nominate student leaders, staff, and their actions for consideration for awards. Usually, writing bids is a joint effort among the staff and student leaders within the community.

The categories for Of The Year awards are:

  • First-Year Experience Award
  • Student of the Year
  • Resident Assistant of the Year
  • Program of the Year
  • Advisor of the Year
  • Outstanding Service Award

Bids and letters of recommendation must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 25, by using the the OTY submission form

NRHH will evaluate the bids and choose the winners. Nominations are judged according to the criteria below, and are given a score out of 30.
