Area students are Calvin James Whitney, Emmetsburg, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; and Keaton T. Dornath, Fort Dodge, School of Business.

The honor roll comprises undergraduates who meet requirements in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and in the schools of Architecture, Design and Planning; Business; Education; Engineering; Health Professions; Journalism; Music; Nursing; Pharmacy; and Social Welfare.

Honor roll criteria vary among the university’s academic units.

Students must complete a minimum number of credit hours to be considered for the honor roll.
