Making the President’s List at SNHU

In Musings of a Middle-Aged Studentby Daniel M. ClarkAdvertising present (What's this?)

Southern New Hampshire University has two honors distinctions that celebrate GPA throughout the year: the Dean's List and the President's List. Students with a GPA between 3.5 and 3.699 make the Dean's List. Students with a GPA of 3.7 or higher make the President's List.

On-campus students must meet the requirement with at least 12 credits in the full semester (fall or spring, depending on the time of year), while we online students must meet the requirement with at least 12 credits in a trimester (a four-month period).

With a GPA of 4.0, I made the President's List for the Fall 2019 trimester…

…and was notified last week that I'd achieved the same for the Winter 2020 trimester.

The lists in the school's press releases are very long—SNHU has quite a student body—but my name's in there each time.

I wasn't always a good student, and it does surprise me a little that I'm doing so well—but I'll take it. It's an honor to be recognized and a point of pride to be eligible.


Shout out to the other Clarks who made the President's List with me: Alexarae, Angel, Courteney, Courtney, Dannielle, Darlyn, Jeremy, Kristal, Mandie, Matthew, McKenzie, Michelle, Paul, Sarah, and Tayamka. I don't know any of them, but they must be awesome people. Clarks generally are.
