Each year, Penn State Brandywine recognizes outstanding student achievements and academic excellence at the Academic Recognition Ceremony. In addition to the Academic Achievement Award, presented to all students who earn a 3.5 GPA or higher, several other awards are given to individuals whose accomplishments deserve commendation.
