Nominate Alumni For Awards and Recognition

Each year Wheeling Jesuit University recognizes alumni for their service to the community, the University, and for their past athletic performance.

The Clifford M. Lewis, S.J. Award is given annually by the Wheeling Jesuit University Alumni Council to alumni who exhibit extraordinary service, contribution ad dedication to the University in the spirit of Fr. Lewis. The Lewis Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Alumni Council.

The Pedro Arrupe Distinguished Alumni Award, named in honor of the 28th Superior General of the Society of Jesus, is presented by Wheeling Jesuit University to a graduate who embodies the ideals of Ignatian spirituality.  The award recognizes a graduate who is living a life committed to serving others and leads others to explore the link between peace and justice in the true spirit of Fr. Arrupe.  Given by the President, the award is presented during Alumni weekend. 

The St. Ignatius Loyola Distinguished Alumni Award, named in honor of the founder of the Society of Jesus, is presented by Wheeling Jesuit University to a graduate who exemplifies the Jesuit ideals of extraordinary competence and personal compassion in one's chosen profession. Given by the President, the award is presented during Alumni Weekend.

The James O'Brien, S.J. Alumni Award (Formerly GOLD Award - Graduates of the Last Decade) recognizes recent (up to 15 years) alumni who  manifest a growing competence in their chosen field, and whose personal life reflects WJU's mission of "educating men and women for life, leadership, and service to others".

Alumni Council sometimes receives names for consideration that seem to fit into a very specific category.  These are individuals who act in the Ignatian spirit of MAGIS, of doing more and giving more to others and of themselves. Thus, Alumni Council created the Alumni Magis Award, to be given, when warranted, in light of an individualís hidden, faithful service to the University and its people.

The Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes former WJU athletes for their performance while a member of a Cardinal athletic team. Each year, the athletic department accepts nominations for inductees into the Hall.
