Alumni Awards


On Friday, October 16, Nipissing University celebrated its amazing graduates at the Alumni Awards Reception.

The university marked the achievements of two graduates with alumni awards and recognized one individual with honorary alumni status at the event, taking place from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Harris Learning Library.

“The Alumni Awards represent a highlight on the annual calendar at Nipissing University.  It’s a fantastic way for us to celebrate some outstanding leaders who share a bond with Nipissing.  It is inspiring for our students and other graduates to see how a degree from Nipissing has helped both Erin and Matthew achieve their goals,” said Genevieve DeBruyn, Alumni relations Coordinator at Nipissing University.

Nipissing University and the Nipissing University Alumni Advisory Board were pleased to celebrate the achievements of this year’s alumni award recipients:
