Natalie Odzuck – Best Society and Best Society event winner
“The golden globes award was a fabulous event that rewarded students for their engagement and their support at GCU. I think in order to raise student engagement on campus this event should take part every trimester, as it also shows the students that their help and support is acknowledged and very much appreciated.”
