Active Learning

Celebration of Excellence is an annual Illinois College campus tradition each spring with a full day of events to mark the closing of the academic year and celebrate the achievements of the IC community. 

The daylong event brings together the community for a variety of activities throughout campus, like an honors convocation, music recital and student presentations of research and projects covering all areas of the liberal arts curriculum. 

Students and faculty are awarded for excellence and innovation in academics, service and teaching. Recognition is given to the student marshals for the following year, seniors who qualify as Phi Beta Kappa graduates, the Julian Monson Sturtevant Campus Leadership Award winners, the Harry Joy Dunbaugh Distinguished Professor Award and the Don P. Filson Faculty Award for Vision for the Future.
