Twenty-three standout students, employees, programs, and student organizations were honored with Aaron O. Hoff Awards during a ceremony at Lafayette’s Williams Center for the Arts. The annual awards, presented by the Division of Campus Life, honor the legacy of Aaron O. Hoff—the College’s first African American student and a member of the Class of 1836—and recognize awardees for their inspiration, contributions, dedication, and leadership.

Each spring for the last 31 years, the Division of Campus Life calls on the Lafayette community to nominate the individuals and groups who embody Hoff’s strength of character and his endeavors to build community. Award recipients are then selected by a nine-person committee of students and administrators. Awards are presented in several categories—individual, organization, educator, and program.
