Preparations are underway at the University of Liberia (UL) for the honoring of more than 1,340 “brilliant students” who continue to perform extraordinarily well in their academic studies.
The vice president for University Relations, Atty. Norris Tweah, made the disclosure recently when the associate vice president for Enrollment Management, James Moses Lincoln, presented him a copy of last semester’s academic performance report of the students.
He told Mr. Tweah that in spite of the limited facilities at the state-run university, hundreds of students were performing remarkably well.
Receiving the list, Tweah commended him and said it was gratifying to know that in spite of limited resources, hundreds of students were striving hard to prepare for tomorrow’s challenges. Based on their excellent academic performances, they will be appropriately honored at a special ceremony as soon as the university reopens. Mr. Tweah said he would work in collaboration with the vice president for Academic Affairs and the UL Administration to honor the students.
On the ‘brilliant’ list are seven students who earned perfect scores and obtained a 4.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) in all their courses. The list also includes 444 female students who made the university honor roll last semester, a significant improvement compared to past semesters.
The UL student enrollment stands at 36,000.
It may be recalled that an extraordinary honoring program was held on the UL Capitol Hill campus for nearly five hundred students who made Grade Point Averages (GPA) of 3.00 and above. All the honorees were awarded full scholarships.
