In fall 2017, 732 University Housing residents made the Dean’s List, the criterion for which is a 3.5 or higher GPA. An overwhelming 203 of those students have maintained a cumulative 4.0 GPA while at SIUE.

When asked what being on the Dean’s List meant to her, Haylee Lutz said, “All the stress and tears have paid off. I am taking 18 credits, so it is a lot of work!”

University Housing Director Michael Schultz stated, “We look forward to the continued success of our residents during their academic journey here at SIUE. It is our priority to support their academic success, and we are glad to honor their commitment to achieving their goals.”
