Sporting a 3.75 grade-point average or higher, 138 students reserved a spot on the 2016 fall semester dean’s list at Warren Wilson College.

Out of the 18 academic programs represented, environmental studies majors made up 21 percent of the list. Outdoor leadership, art, psychology, sociology & anthropology, biology and creative writing are each represented by eight or more students. Nearly 30 percent of spring semester honorees are from North Carolina.

“The dean’s list spotlights students who exhibit academic excellence by achieving the highest GPAs each term,” said Paula Garrett, vice president for academic affairs and dean of Warren Wilson College. “These students are also earning credit for campus work and community engagement. When I see the names on this list, I know these undergraduates are not only dedicated to their studies, but they are going above and beyond.”

Each semester, Garrett sends a signed card to each recognized student noting the dean’s list commendation. Everyone on the list is treated to a reception organized by library faculty member Mei Mah. In addition to the GPA requirement, students must be enrolled full-time with no incomplete courses to be recognized.
