NU-Q Announces List of Top Students

Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) has announced its Dean’s List for fall 2015 that recognizes students who have excelled in their academic studies for the semester.
Fifty-three students enrolled at NU-Q earned the academic distinction in the most recently completed semester, including communication majors who achieved a 3.75 grade point average (GPA) out of 4.0 on three graded courses, and journalism majors who achieved a 3.7 GPA on three graded courses or, if on residency, completed two graded courses in addition to their residency.

“Recognizing academic excellence is a meaningful way for students to feel their hard work is valued and appreciated,” said Everette E. Dennis, Dean and CEO of NU-Q. “As a destination for nurturing future media, government and business leaders in the Middle East, NU-Q is committed to providing quality education in media and communication through a highly-disciplined academic program.”

Six freshman, 13 sophomores, 13 juniors, 14 seniors and seven fall 2015 graduates earned their place on the notable list.

Northwestern University was recently ranked in the top 15 colleges and universities in the respected U.S. News Best Colleges list for 2016 and has more than 200,000 living alumni across its three campuses in the U.S and Qatar, including countless public figures, statespersons, and societal leaders.

NU-Q offers three major programs including Journalism, Communication and Liberal Arts, and is committed to excellent teaching, innovative research and the personal intellectual growth of students within a diverse academic community.
