Bright Lights is an annual celebration and reception hosted by the College of Liberal Arts to honor our most exceptional undergraduate students. Students are invited if they were on Dean’s List for either of the previous two semesters; because they have received a college scholarship (including internship scholarships); or because they hold leadership positions with college-affiliated organizations. Invitees will receive multiple invitations via email in the weeks and months leading up to the event; students should consult their email to find RSVP links and further information.
