MSVU Co-op Student of the Year Awards (2023)

Each year, one student from each of the eligible co-op programs (Business Administration, Public Relations and Tourism & Hospitality Management) is awarded the title of MSVU Co-op Student of the Year. These students exemplify outstanding contributions to the workplace, extra-curricular activities and academic excellence. The MSVU Co-op Student of the Year Award was instituted in 1999 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of co-operative education and continues to celebrate outstanding students annually.

The selection committee had the difficult task of choosing one student from each discipline to be named MSVU Co-op Student of the Year (2023). The selection criteria included academic achievement, community involvement, contribution to the employer, and the impact co-operative education has had on personal and professional development.

We are pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the MSVU Co-op Student of the Year Award:
