Bronze Tablet Award
The Bronze Tablet is a recognition of continuous high academic achievement. The student's name is inscribed on the Bronze Tablet, which hangs on a wall in the Main Library Building. (Images of these tablets are available here.)
Undergraduate students must meet the following qualifications:
