During the gala, YoUDee Awards were presented for outstanding achievement in Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), Greek chapters and club sports.

Marilyn Prime, director of student centers, said the awards recognize the commitment and dedication of student leaders and organizations that have made a positive impact on the University and the Newark community.
