In October, students received news they made Biola University's Dean's List for their academic excellence last Spring. The following local students were among those honored for their academic success:
From Castro Valley:
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 of more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2.
"Inclusion on the Biola Dean's List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program," Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education Patricia Pike said. "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.
