Lincoln to Recognize Students for Outstanding Academic Achievements at Honors Convocation on March 9, 2005

Lincoln University, which has earned a national reputation for its distinguished role in higher education, will recognize its undergraduate students for their high academic achievements at the annual Student Honors Convocation on Wednesday, March 9, 2005, at 11 a.m., in the main Gymnasium of Manuel Rivero Hall.

“Lincoln’s annual Honors Convocation recognizes some of the University’s outstanding students for their exceptional academic achievements and their exemplary dedication to hard work and high performance,” University President Ivory V. Nelson, Ph.D., said.

The event at Lincoln’s main campus in southern Chester County, PA is being presented as a formal occasion with full academic regalia. A reception for honored students, members of their family and other guests will be held at the hall immediately following the convocation.

Special recognition -- the prestigious President's Award – will be given to students who achieved a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 4.0 and above. The Dean's Award will be presented to outstanding seniors with cumulative GPAs of 3.8 and above. Students earning 3.3 GPAs and above during the spring 2004 and fall 2004 semesters will be given certificates and in some cases cash awards. In addition, students earning a GPA of 3.0 and above during the spring 2004 and fall 2004 semesters are being recognized.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is a premier, Historically Black University that combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of those living in a highly technological and global society. The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); computer and informational sciences; biological and life sciences. Lincoln enrolls 2,012 undergraduate and graduate students.
