Students complete 2016-17 academic year on a record-hitting note

June 16, 2017

Nearly 600 students landed on either the Dean’s or President’s lists during the spring 2017 semester, a near 10 percent increase in student honors over the semester prior.

Of the 895 residential and online students enrolled during the spring semester, 596 total students were awarded a spot on either list.

For a student to be considered for the Dean’s List, they must be enrolled full-time, earn no lower than a “C” course grade and either achieve or maintain a semester GPA of 3.5 or above.

President’s List students must also be full-time, receive a course grade no lower than a “C”, but must either achieve or maintain a 4.0 GPA .

In addition to their academic endeavors, student-athletes—who make up over 40 percent of the student body—finished the year with an overall 3.18 GPA across all the teams.

In May, Lees-McRae graduated its largest class in its history, awarding 334 diplomas.
