PAWsitively the Best is Southern’s online commendation program based on the five pads of the Lion Paw: Respect to Campus, Positive Attitude, Pride in Work, Exemplary Dependability, and Excellence in Customer Service.

The system allows any university employee to submit a commendation for a fellow employee, sending them a quick shout-out for a job well done, a thank you for their support on a project, or a message of praise for going above and beyond.

But wait, that’s not all!

Points will be awarded for both submitting and receiving a commendation! Points can be used in the PAWsitively store (coming Spring 2020) to purchase rewards such as Southern-branded merchandise, tickets to local and regional events, and on-campus immersive learning experiences like a visit to the crime lab or a seat at the pottery wheel!
