VCUarts Qatar honours Dean's List achievers.
Tribune News Network Doha The Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar (VCUarts Qatar) recently held a special event to honour the students whose hard work and excellent academic skills earned them a place on the Dean's List. The families of the students also attended the special occasion as the students were awarded certificates for their outstanding academic achievements. The Dean's List is a recognition of superior academic performance and only students with a Grade Point Average of 3.5 qualify. Of the 103 outstanding Dean's List students, 18 were freshmen, 31 were sophomores, 17 were juniors and 37 were seniors. Dr Donald Baker, executive dean at VCUarts Qatar, welcomed the students and their families, saying, "It is an honour to be on the Dean's List and an honour for us to welcome you and your families here. As students on the Dean's List, you set an example and set the standard for all other students. By being here today you have set yourselves up to be our outstanding alumni leaders but you have to keep on working both in your degree and outside of it." Certificates of Appreciation were also awarded at the event to four graduates from the Class of 2018 who were recently recognised at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education's Excellence Awards, which was held under the patronage of the Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani. The graduates included Noof Khalid M A al Heidous, Hissa A al Hail, Al Jazi Khalid al Thani and Sara Haider A A Mashhadi.
