Parade honors 801 students on Dean's List
"Academics at Norwich are not meant to be easy - they are tough - but they can be thrilling," stated Norwich University President Richard W. Schneider at last Friday's Parade in Honor of Academic Excellence. Held on January 23, the NUCC parade was the first since the Norwich student body returned from winter break.
Addressing the crowd in Shapiro Field House, the president welcomed back all of the students, and congratulated those individuals who had achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or above during the fall semester. "Of the 801 students who made the Dean's List, 350 had a grade point average of 3.5 or above, and 98 had a perfect 4.0," Schneider stated.
The president also recognized the Norwich faculty for dedicating their lives to helping Norwich students achieve their greatest academic potential. "Our faculty demand much from our students, but they give much in return - not just in the classroom - but in the form of countless hours of extra help sessions and one-on-one mentoring," the president said.
In recognition of their achievement, students who made the Dean's List received special pins, awarded by Division Heads from the seven academic areas.
