On Thursday, April 27, 2017, the top 50 students in the Ray P. Authement College of Sciences were recognized in a ceremony headed by Dean Azmy S. Ackleh. This group of 50 excellent students consists of the top 30 senior, 11 junior and 9 sophomore undergraduate students in our college. These students, all of whom are on the Dean's list and many of whom are on the President's list, were selected based on their cumulative GPAs and total credit hours earned during the 2016-17 academic year. In cases of equal GPA's the students with more credit hours were favored for this selection. The average GPA for these 50 students is 3.986. Thirty-four of the 50 had perfect 4.0 GPAs.
This was the second year that the college formally honored its highest-achieving undergraduates. Dean Azmy S. Ackleh met with the students as a group and individually to offer congratulations. Each student was presented with a custom Ray P. Authement College of Sciences t-shirt or coffee mug.
