Student Housing & Residential Life (SHRL) hosted the annual SHRLies Awards Ceremony in the Student Center Houston Room on Wednesday, April 26. This event seeks to recognize SHRL student staff for their service and engagement efforts throughout the academic year.

Students were awarded individual and program honors based on nominations from peers and unit team members. Graduating seniors were also presented with department cords to commemorate their time on staff while attending the university.

More than 250 people were in attendance for the ceremony, which is open to students, faculty, and staff each spring.
