Students, Nominate Someone for an Iggy
Students, now is the time to nominate someone that has embodied the spirit of Saint Ignatius Loyola for an Iggy award.
The IGGY Award, affectionately named after the Jesuit founder St. Ignatius of Loyola, is supported by the Office of Student Retention at Creighton. We want to honor and recognize a Creighton individual who has been instrumental to your success as a Bluejay.
Who was that professor, staff member or student leader who provided counsel and support during the last semester? Was it an instructor who provided mentoring beyond the classroom? Could it be the office administrator who encouraged you to try something new? Perhaps it was the RA or supervisor who gave great advice or staff member who made your day brighter.
The nominations are open until January 27, so get your nominations in now!
