Biola University has named Madeline Burns and Marissa Drake both of Houlton among 1,513 to its spring 2014 dean’s list for their academic excellence.
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 or more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least 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 vice provost for academic administration, Patricia Pike. “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.
