BOSTON, Mass. – Two area students achieved academic distinction at Northeastern University.
Edison resident Kirti Kewalramani, who is majoring in health science, and New Providence resident Alina Visco, who is majoring in mechanical engineering, were named to the university’s dean’s list for the fall semester.
To achieve the dean’s list distinction, students must carry a full program of at least four courses, have a quality point average of 3.5 or greater out of a possible 4.0 and carry no single grade lower than a C- during the course of their college career. Each student receives a letter of commendation and congratulation from their college dean.
In addition to achieving distinction through the dean’s list, these local students are members of the University Honors Program, which offers high caliber students the chance to further hone their studies and interests, live in special interest on-campus housing, and participate in one or two honors courses each term. Invitation into the honors program is highly competitive and students must maintain a high GPA and strong commitment to campus leadership to remain a part. Currently, these local students are among some 1,400 students involved in Northeastern’s honors program.
