The following local residents were among 1,306 students named to Biola University's Spring 2012 Dean's List for academic excellence:
- Brian Kim of Artesia
- Michelle Law of Cerritos
- Katherine Lim of Cerritos
- Kenneth Nguyen of Artesia
- Ana Virginia Ronquillo of Cerritos
Biola students are placed on the Dean's List to honor those with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in 12 or more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2. This past spring, 33 percent of Biola students achieved this academic goal.
"Inclusion on the Biola Dean's List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program," said Patricia Pike, vice provost for undergraduate education. "Our Dean's List students are bright, motivated, engaged, competent, and personable. They are already demonstrating the characteristics of success that results from applied intelligence and that will support future endeavors in society, community, career, and family life."
Biola's grade point average requirement for the Dean's List is one of the highest among Southern California Christian universities.
