Top Students Awarded Dean's List Distinction

The spring 2018 School of Undergraduate Studies Dean’s List banquet was held Thursday, February 15.

The Dean’s List is a distinction given to UGS students who earned a grade point average in the top 4% of their class during the fall 2017 semester. All 56 students on the Dean’s List made a GPA of 4.0.

Keynote speaker Daron Roberts shared his story of graduating from Harvard Law School and coaching in the NFL, to teaching a Signature Course at UT Austin and founding the Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation at UT. Roberts had advice for every Dean’s List honoree, encouraging them to, “stay in over your head,” and to “choose the path that makes you happy, not the path wrapped up in emblem and prestige.”

Dean Brent Iverson and Associate Dean Larry Abraham personally congratulated the Dean’s List recipients and offered words of encouragement as they continue their already-impressive careers at UT Austin.

Congratulations to the spring 2018 Dean’s List.
