Each year, an ambitious number of students squeeze in a full load of credit hours during the hottest semester of the year.

Dean Don Pope-Davis is proud to congratulate the just over 50 students in education and human ecology who made the Summer 2023 Dean’s List.

The honor goes to those who earn grade point averages of 3.5 or higher while completing at least 12 credit hours of coursework during the semester. Their exemplary grades are a credit to them and their faculty.

A high GPA means more than studying in the classroom. Students in the college gain valuable, real-world experience.

Some of these students were engaged in summer field experiences as part of their required coursework. Notably, students majoring in fashion and retail studies, hospitality management and sport industry took part in approved internships where they learned while working under experienced mentors.

Others, for instance students majoring in human development and family science, contributed to the research agenda of their faculty mentors.       

Most took coursework on the Columbus campus, but two studied at the Lima campus and two were at the Marion campus.

Let’s celebrate these high achievers.
