As undergraduate students get settled into each fall term, an event is held to celebrate their academic achievements from the previous year. The Academic Excellence Dinner invites high-achieving students to an evening celebration, including first year students who received entrance scholarships based on their high school grades, and returning students with GPAs the placed them on the Dean’s List.
As part of the evening’s program, those assembled listened as Dr. Mark Lee of Crandall’s History Department brought encouragement and a challenge (as well as a bit of wisdom relating to the Roman Empire).
Last year, over 600 financial awards were given to Crandall students in the form of scholarships and bursaries, totalling nearly $1 million.
Congratulations to everyone on your achievements, and may the new year bring further success!
