Golden Eagle Award

In connection to UNT's 125th anniversary celebrated in 2015-2016, the Center for Leadership and Service and Student Activities created the Golden Eagle Award. The Golden Eagle Award is the most prestigious award that UNT bestows on a student leader. Any student who has been a leader in campus life, student organizations, athletics, research, activism, mentorship, etc. and has had a positive and meaningful impact on the UNT community is encouraged to apply for the 7th class of the Golden Eagle. The recipients are those who show a tremendous commitment to co-curricular activities and enhancing campus life at UNT by engaging in considerable service and displaying great leadership, all while achieving excellence in the classroom.

    Symbolism for the Award

    For centuries, golden eagles have been revered in many cultures around the world. They have a flying ability that surpasses all other eagles, symbolizing the highest-regarded leadership ability among student-leaders. They fly with purpose and soar higher and faster than other animal species, symbolizing their drive and far-reaching influence and impact. While many eagles are known for their strong voices, golden eagles have a tendency to be soft-spoken, symbolizing the ability to lead by actions more than words. Finally, the golden eagle has a long life-span, symbolizing the ability to leave a lasting legacy.
