Bronco Award

Established in 1924 by the editors of the Bronco yearbook, the Bronco Award is the highest, non-academic honor Hastings College bestows on a student.  The recipient of the Bronco Award is a graduating senior chosen by a secret student-faculty committee which makes its selection based on the results of a campus community voting process.  Individuals selected to receive the Bronco Award have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the campus community and constructive collegiate citizenship.
