With winter break coming to a close, Alfred State welcomed its students back to campus this week for the start of a brand-new spring semester.

Among those returning were hundreds of scholars who made the dean’s list for the fall 2017 semester. To be listed, students must have completed at least 12 credit hours for the semester and earned a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) out of a possible 4.0. 

For the most recent semester, the dean’s list includes 758 students. In addition, 205 of these students achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA.

Dr. Kristin Poppo, provost at Alfred State, said, “We are proud to have so many academically gifted students here at Alfred State. It is through their dedication and hard work that they have been able to achieve the dean’s list. When combining these traits with our hands-on, applied learning approach, these students will be well-prepared for the careers they are seeking.”

The dean for the School of Architecture, Management, and Engineering Technology (SAMET) confirms 370 students received the honor. The dean’s list for the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) includes 157 students. At the School of Applied Technology (SAT), another 224 students made the dean’s list. A total of seven continuing education students were named to the dean’s list, as well.

The college congratulates all of the students who earned dean’s list honors. The students’ hometown newspapers receive information regarding honorees, including details for each student earning a perfect 4.0 GPA. The complete dean’s list is available online at
