Well more than a third of the honors went to students majoring in accounting, biology-chemistry and education. But the full spectrum of majors offered at the 1,223-student liberal arts College is represented on the Dean’s List: from sociology, French, history and communication studies to athletic training, computer science, Spanish, peace studies, art, English and religion.

The honors went to students who earned a 3.5 GPA or higher during the fall 2009 semester while
enrolled in at least 12 credit hours of classes, said Registrar Lila Hammer.
