KINGSTON, RI -- The University of Rhode Island is pleased to announce that more than 4,986 undergraduates have qualified for the Spring 2016 Dean's List. The students represent nearly all of Rhode Island's cities and towns, all six New England states, New York and New Jersey, other states and 25 countries.

The following students from Tewksbury were named to URI's Spring 2016 Dean's List:

  • Jaime Daria Makooi 
  • Erin M Tibbetts 
  • Mackenzie Ann Pierce 
  • Sara Anna Semenza 
  • Jennifer A Schultz 

To be included on the Dean's List, students must have completed 12 or more credits during a semester for letter grades with at least a 3.30 quality point average. Part-time students qualify with the accumulation of 12 credits with a 3.30 quality point average.

The University uses a national news distribution service, Merit, to publicize student accomplishments, like making the dean's list. This service sends University student news to hometown newspapers, and publishes it on the Merit site to help URI students build a positive online profile.
