April 27, 2017 – College of Engineering undergraduate Darcie Christensen is among the winners of this year's Robins Awards.

The Robins Awards are the most coveted of all Utah State University honors and the awards night is the year’s most prestigious event. This year marks the 68th year since Bill E. Robins was student body president at Utah State University. It is in his name that we continue to celebrate this renowned tradition.

This year more than 100 nominations from students, staff and administration were received. Those nominated were asked to submit a comprehensive biography by which a selection committee could evaluate their accomplishments.
