Goshen College announces Spring 2003-2004 Dean’s List; 221 students recognized for excellence in academic achievement

GOSHEN, Ind. — Goshen College recently recognized 221 students for excellence in academics on the Spring 2003-2004 Dean’s List.

To meet the criteria for inclusion in the Dean’s List, students must earn a 3.8 GPA or higher and be enrolled full time at Goshen College. Only grades from the designated semester are included in the Dean’s List selection process.

The college initiated its Dean’s List during the first semester of the 1999-2000 school year as part of its Honors Program, which highlights the college’s liberal arts excellence and includes an honors colloquium for first-year students, honors seminars, an Annual Student Research Symposium, internships and an honors degree. The list celebrates the achievement of students who have met high academic standards and can motivate students preparing for graduate studies, according to Anita Stalter, academic dean, vice president for academic affairs and professor of education.

Students earning at least a 3.6 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) in Goshen College Division of Adult and External Services also are included in the list – a significant achievement since most DAES students are working adults taking highly personalized night classes.

An asterisk beside a name indicates that the student earned a 4.0 GPA without taking any courses credit elect and taking at least 12 hours for letter grade.

The list of students named to the Spring 2003-2004 Dean’s List includes:
