NIU announces spring Dean’s List

Northern Illinois University announces its Spring 2016 Dean’s List students. These students have enjoyed the best of both worlds: the resources and breadth of a large university with the culture and mindset of a smaller college.

Each semester’s Dean’s List is compiled by NIU’s academic colleges according to student grade point averages.

To earn this distinction, students must meet a minimum semester grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale in the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology or a minimum of 3.75 on a 4.0 scale in the colleges of Business, Education, Health and Human Sciences, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Visual and Performing Arts to receive this distinction.

Information released by NIU’s Office of Registration and Records indicate Dean’s List students from the local area include:

Chartered in 1895, NIU first opened its doors as the Northern Illinois State Normal School in 1899 as a teachers college. The university has grown since into a world-class, research-focused public institution that attracts students from across Illinois, the country and the world.
