Doha, Qatar: Northwestern University in Qatar has announced the names of the 59 students who have excelled in their academic studies, and achieved the Dean’s List for the fall 2015 and spring 2016 semesters.
“Making the Dean’s List at NU-Q is recognition for students who go beyond a conventional effort, but instead demonstrate rigor and commitment to learning,” said Everette E. Dennis, dean and CEO.
The Dean’s List is comprised of 36 communication and 23 journalism students, who earned academic distinction in the most recently completed semesters. Communication majors must have achieved at least a 3.75 grade point average (GPA) out of 4.0 on three graded courses, and journalism majors must have achieved a 3.7 GPA on three graded courses or, if on residency, two graded courses in addition to their residency.
The students were invited to attend a celebratory luncheon with Dennis, where they received certificates, socialized with their peers, and shared thoughts on their student experiences at NU-Q.
Fourteen freshmen, 16 sophomores, 17 juniors, 4 seniors, and eight graduates earned places on the notable list.
