A large group of current and former Sussex residents either made their university's Dean's List or graduated from college. Do you know any of these smart students?
Mount Mary College
The following residents were named to the Mount Mary College Spring 2012 Dean's List. The dean's list honors full-time students who have earned a 3.6 GPA or better while taking 12 or more credits during the recent semester.
"The Dean's List is an excellent way to recognize our top students," says Dr. Laurel End, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. "Making it onto the Dean's List is a real achievement for any student and many Mount Mary students balance challenging academic work with demanding family or professional responsibilities."
