Annual Student Achievement Day 2021

Students, faculty, and staff members from the Athens and Nashua campuses came together on June 2nd to celebrate student research and excellence at the Annual Student Achievement Day. The umbrella event, now in its 10th year, includes the Annual Student Conference and the President’s Award Ceremony.

The first part, which is organized by the Research Institute, serves as a forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research. This year’s program featured four undergraduate and six graduate presentations (program attached).

At the end of the session, the Research Committee announced the awards for the best presentations. Eleni Plemmenou, Sasa Rajicic, Ioanna Katsianaki and George Kassimis, all students in the B.S. in Psychology program, received the undergraduate award for their paper “The Psycho-Social Effect of House Tagging on Residents and Neighborhood Health & Safety Risks of Sign Tagging”. Eleni Kalpia Ilia (MAAL '19) received the graduate award for her research on “Designing and Using an Intercultural Awareness & Sensitivity Checklist to Evaluate Selected Greek EFL Textbooks”.

In the second part, the University celebrated the 2020 and 2021 award recipients for the Newman Civic Fellowship, the NH Campus Compact Presidents’ Awards for Leadership, Good Steward, and Community Partner, and the President’s Awards for Academic Achievement.
