Dean’s List

Eastern Connecticut State University

Willimantic, CT - Eastern Connecticut State University recently released its Dean’s List for the spring 2024 semester.  Among them is full-time student Natalie Garcia of Orange, a sophomore who majors in Pre-Social Work. To qualify for Dean’s List, full-time students must complete a minimum of 12 credits in letter-graded courses with an average GPA of 3.5 or higher in the semester.  Part-time students are eligible if they’ve accumulated 15 or more credits of letter-graded coursework with an average GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Stonehill College

Easton, MA - Over 1,000 students earned a spot on this semester’s roster.  Those from Orange, CT are:  Marissa Dwyer and Anna Varholak.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Worcester, MA - A total of 2,226 undergraduate students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) achieved the criteria required for the university’s spring 2024 Dean’s List. The criteria for the WPI Dean’s List differs from that of most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA).  Instead, WPI defines the Dean’s List by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.

The following Orange students were named to the Dean’s List for Spring 2024:  Natalie Carrington, class of 2025, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Stephen Stardellis, class of 2026, majoring in Computer Science.


University of Rhode Island

Kingston, RI - The University of Rhode Island celebrated more than 4,100 of its newest alumni during the University’s 2024 Commencement.  Nearly 4,000 undergraduate degrees and 800 graduate degrees were conveyed to students during the ceremonies which took place May 17-19, 2024.  Among them were:  Elizabeth Cohen, Jayson Hutchinson and Annmarie Demichiel; all from Orange, CT.
