Published 1:30 pm Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Columbus resident Stefanie Geisler, a Northeastern University student majoring in journalism, was recently named to the University’s dean’s list for the fall semester, which ended in December 2010.

To achieve the dean’s list distinction, students must carry a full program of at least four courses, have a quality point average of 3.5 or greater out of a possible 4.0 and carry no single grade lower than a C- during the course of their college career. Each student receives a letter of commendation and congratulation from their college dean.

In addition to achieving distinction through the dean’s list, Geisler is a member of the University Honors Program, which offers high caliber students the chance to further hone their studies and interests, live in special interest on-campus housing, and participate in one or two honors courses each term.
