Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) has announced its Dean’s List for spring 2014 that recognizes students who have excelled in their academic studies for the semester. Students who secured their spot were honored at a special awards luncheon, last week where they received their certificate.
45 students enrolled at NU-Q earned the academic distinction including; Communication majors who achieved a 3.75 grade point average (GPA) out of 4.0 on three graded courses, and Journalism majors who achieved a 3.7 GPA on three graded courses or, if on residency, completed two graded courses in addition to their residency.
“The Dean’s List is one of the top academic honors at NU-Q and it is a testament to the time, effort and creativity students put in every day, both in and outside of school for their studies,” said Everette E. Dennis, dean and CEO of NU-Q. “The faculty and I congratulate these outstanding students for their accomplishment. I am confident that one day, they will take their place alongside our previous students who are helping to shape the future of media and communications in Qatar and the Middle East.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dean Dennis for holding this annual luncheon.” said, Ibrahim AlHashmi, a future graduate student with plans to be a screenwriter. “It makes me happy as a student that my school recognizes and celebrates academic excellence and hard work. Being on the dean's list is an honor that motivates me to work harder and make the most out of my classes and experience in NU-Q.”
