Making the Dean’s List and staying on it is not easy. It is an accomplishment to be proud of, especially when the average student is balancing school, work, kids, partner, and a myriad of competing priorities. To celebrate the exceptional commitment Dean’s Listers make to excelling in their studies, CHABSS hosts two Dean’s List Mixers during the academic year.
Finding your way in college can be daunting and a little scary. There's so much to know - not just in regards to your studies, but figuring out what campus resources are available to help you succeed. One resource that many students overlook is their professors. Who better to help navigate academia than an academic? Get to know them.
