Each year, Stevens recognizes the outstanding contributions of female students who have made a lasting difference on campus.
The 2013 Women’s Recognition Brunch, held March 23 at Madison Bar & Grill in Hoboken, N.J., honored 21 exceptional female students for outstanding scholarship, leadership and service.
The Academic Excellence Award was presented to Gabriella Green, Emily Noonan, Laura Lemke, Danielle DeFeo, Dana Lyons and Katelyn Kasperowicz. These undergraduate students have maintained GPAs of 3.8 or higher and contributed to the breadth of knowledge within their academic field, while also being actively involved in service and leadership within the campus community.
Sneha Pandya, Swaroop Desai and Eileen Ding won the Women’s Leadership Award for outstanding female graduate students who have positively impacted the graduate experience through various leadership positions in student organizations.

Halie Holmes, Zoe Elliot, Devin Corson, Christina DeLago and Sarah McDonald – winners of the Service and Leadership Award – were recognized as role models, leaders and change agents, whose commitment to service and leadership has enhanced campus culture and inspired other women.
A special recognition was presented to Justina Kopec and Ewelina Tkacz for their Commitment and Service to Women’s Programs. Both seniors are coordinators for the office, which develops educational and social programming to instill a supportive atmosphere for women at Stevens.
Finally, Juliet Turlaski and Alyssa Antropow was recognized as the 2013 Woman of Distinction, for the positive impact they have had on the experience of other women at Stevens. These students are continuing the strong legacy of women at Stevens through well-rounded leadership and active involvement in the Stevens community – from research and academics to student life and athletics.
“Stevens women have a tremendous legacy of leadership, innovation and service, both as students and as alumni, and this year's award-winners have carried on that legacy, greatly enriching the university for current and future students,” said Stevens Associate Director of Student Life and Coordinator of Women’s Programs Kristie Damell.
