Each year the Beaver College of Health Sciences commemorates our students’ achievements during our spring student awards ceremony. These students were selected by the BCHS faculty through a very competitive process and represent the cornerstone of what Appalachian State University is about — academic performance and scholarship. We hope you enjoy the ceremony's video and learning a little more about these outstanding students (and their excellent faculty and staff) as you hear about some of their accomplishments and career goals.
Undergraduate Academic Awards — These students were selected based on their cumulative grade point averages, their overall academic performance and scholarship, and their high standards of academic integrity.
