Doha: Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) has announced the names of the 59 students who have excelled in academic studies and achieved the Dean’s List for 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 rigour and commitment to learning,” said Everette E. Dennis, Dean and CEO. 

The list comprises 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 residency.

The students were invited to attend a celebratory luncheon with Dennis, where they received certificates, socialised with peers and shared thoughts on their experiences at NU-Q.

Fourteen freshmen, 16 sophomores, 17 juniors, four seniors and eight graduates earned places on the list.
