Susan Rimby, Interim Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences, spoke after Mike. She also called the names of all of the students attending.
Although the requirement for deans’ list was a 3.3 for the spring 2012 semester, it has changed for this semester and those to continue. Students must now achieve at least a 3.5 GPA to make deans’ list.
