In October, Shannon Rosol of Trevor was named to Biola University’s Dean’s List for academic excellence.
Rosol was one of 1,422 students who were named to the Dean’s List for Spring 2013. Biola students are placed on the Dean’s list to honor those with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in twelve of more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2. This past spring, 35 percent of Biola students achieved this academic goal.
“Inclusion on the Biola Dean’s List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program,” said Patricia Pike, vice provost for academic administration. “Our Dean’s List students are bright, motivated, engaged, competent, and personable. They are already demonstrating the characteristics of success that results from applied intelligence and that will support future endeavors in society, community, career, and family life.”
Biola’s grade point average requirement for the Dean’s list is one of the highest among Southern California Christian Universities.
