College of Business

2020-2021 Honors & Awards

Dean Terence Lau

Dear Class of 2021,

Graduation is always the most emotional time of the year on our campus. There is joy at completing a college education and joining the ranks of college graduates, but there is also sadness at saying goodbye to people and places that have been such a big part of our lives for years. 

As you graduate from Chico State, I would like you to know how incredibly proud we, the faculty and staff at the College of Business, are of your accomplishments. We're proud of you for earning honors as listed on this page. We're proud of all of you for making it through the good times and the bad. We're proud of you for demonstrating resilience and grit, and above all, caring for each other. As you move on from Chico, don't forget your alma mater and stay in touch. We'd love to hear from you as you move into professional success.

Once again, congratulations!

Terence Lau, Dean
