The “Distinguished Service Award,” is presented each year to alumni of Geneva College for service above self, who embody the principles for which Geneva College stands, and whose efforts on behalf of the college, the community, and the nation have been exemplary. The award is also a means of honoring alumni for exemplifying Geneva’s standards, mission and commitment to servant-leadership. The “DSA” is awarded each year to an average of five recipients, but as many as twelve and as few as one have been selected.
The "Young Alumni Award" is presented to an individual who has graduated from Geneva within 10 years of when the award is being presented, has made an outstanding contribution to his/her avocation or occupation and has made an accomplishment which demonstrates an enthusiasm or vigor which typifies and represents the spirit of both students and recent graduates. These accomplishments must be made while maintaining a Christ-honoring perspective in every aspect of their lives. The recipient must exhibit a significant concern for and contribution to the development and success of Geneva College following their graduation. The Young Alumni Award is not presented every year.
