Connor Mahony makes University of Nebraska's dean's list


Connor Mahony from greater Riverdale, with a 4.0 GPA, was one of more than 6,400 students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to make the dean’s list for the spring semester.

Qualifications for the distinction vary among the eight undergraduate colleges and the Explore Center at the university. If the student is double majoring, they can be on the dean’s list for more than one college.

Mahony is a computer engineering major. In that school, the requirement is a minimum of a 3.5 grade point average. The College of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources, College of Architecture, and College of Education and Human Sciences remain the highest at 3.75.

The public research university was a chartered “land grant” university in 1869 to create opportunities for Nebraskans.

The average grade point average at the school is higher than 3.5, making it strongly competitive.

It is considered to be the top tier of national research universities.

Justin Hill makes Dean College dean’s list

Supporting the community for more than 150 years, Dean College is a private, residential, not-for-profit institution that is fully accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education.

Like Manhattan College, Dean College was once Dean Academy, which was all male and offered preparation for a four-year college or university. The junior college fundamentally provided a preparation in vocational training and was not accredited.
