More Than 2,800 Attain Dean's List
By Richard Veilleux, Office of University Communications
STORRS, Conn. -- More
than 2,800 students at the University of Connecticut -- nearly 24 percent
of the University's full-time students -- attained
the Dean's List during the Spring 2001 semester, UConn officials reported
Monday. Three hundred thirteen scored perfect 4.0 grade point averages.
The students represent 166
of Connecticut's 169 towns and cities, all six New England states, New
York and New Jersey, more than 20 other states and seven countries.
Overall, 2,837 of
11,958 eligible undergraduates made the prestigious list, including 490,
or nearly 15 percent, of the freshman class. Of the 313 students with
perfect 4.0 GPA's, 30 were freshmen.
To be included on the Dean's List at UConn, students must carry at
least 12 credit hours, rank in the upper 25th percentile of students in
the school or college they are enrolled in, and can
have no lower than a "C" in any course. In some schools, the criteria
are extremely tough, including the School of Education, where a 4.0
was required, and the School of Pharmacy,
where the cut-off last semester was only slightly less than 3.7.
