Six FIT students are among 256 students from the 64 SUNY colleges and universities who have been honored by Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher as recipients of the 2017 Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence.
The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence acknowledges students who have received recognition for distinguished achievements and their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service, or creative and performing arts. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a student by SUNY.
