The Student Leadership Banquet brings together all student organization leaders for food and fun with the purpose of building relationships across student leadership. It also provides an opportunity to give recognition to the students leading this initiative for all their hard work and it provides a venue to highlight all the positive things that do not always get shared with the campus community.
Who’s Who recognizes selected participants that meet requirements identified by the Office of Student Life. These criteria may include GPA, community service, faculty nomination, student involvement, and much more. The chosen students are selected to appear in the annual Who’s Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges national directory. RVC Student Life then prepares a reception ceremony to celebrate our students’ success and to give students at Rock Valley College an opportunity to showcase their accomplishments in front of faculty, staff and their fellow student recipients.
