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.
