CSU also earned Gold for Best Student Alumni Programming for its 5 Under 35 program – panel discussions which provide current students with insights on life after graduation from young alumni.
CSU took home three Bronze awards for Best Institutional Website for the CSU Foundation website; Excellence in Special Events, Individual for the Women's Leadership Symposium; and Best New Alumni Program for Continuum: The Alumni Engagement Model which employs a step-by-step approach to deepening levels of alumni participation and philanthropy.
