Is there an actual list that shows all the student's that have achieved this honor, or is it a personal honor only viewed by those who have achieved a GPA that fits the requirements for the Dean's List and the President's List?
Undergraduate students who are registered for at least twelve semester hours of letter-grade (A–F) courses are eligible for the dean's list. The required grade point average is 3.50, in all colleges, for any given term.
Undergraduate students who are registered for at least twelve semester hours of letter grade (A–F) courses are eligible for the president's list. The required grade point average is 4.0, in all colleges, for any given term.
Yes, p2n, I did notice that, but is there any other reason to attend? The invitation says that you can meet with deans and honors but I am thinking there will be so many people attendees and not enough time to have much time or conversation with them. And I'm not that desperate for food.
Congratulations, FSUDad! Please feel free to be insufferable for the rest of the day.
Nolette, Belatedly - this kind of attendance is always up to you. If you have any designs to secure a nice recommendation from your departmental dean, they have to know you and see you reasonably often to develop an impression. I think it is an significant error to think that simply making good grades is enough to secure competitive positions after the university time. You need to hone your social skills and seek faculty contacts who will become friends and mentors. As an example, though I graduated decades ago I still maintain a close friendship with a (now long retired) faculty member and his family. He has been a tremendous help in negotiating life's events which always happen.
I didn't get my final fall semester grades yet because I've got a hold on my records because I forgot to pay FSU $15 for a replacement FSUID last month. I mailed a check Monday thinking FSU would have payment posted by Thurs before FSU shut down for winter break. Anyone know if financial office will have people depositing checks over holiday? I tried to avoid paying the extra $7.00 "convenience fee" for paying online, but I guess I may end up paying it to get my account opened up right away.
