Nairi Sarkissian was named to Biola University's Dean's List for academic excellence.
Sarkissian, a Nursing major from Sandy, OR, was one of approximately 1,500 students who were named to the dean's list in spring 2023. Biola students are placed on the dean's list to honor those with a GPA of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in 12 or more credits and whose cumulative GPA is at least 3.2.
"Inclusion in Biola University's Dean's List is reserved for students who demonstrate exceptional performance in their academic studies. This honor signifies hard work, engagement and investment in scholarship," said Dr. Tamara Anderson, Senior Associate Provost. "These attributes are the building blocks of continued success, not only in the classroom, but in the workplace and in the student's personal lives. We celebrate these students and their achievement, looking forward to their future accomplishments."
Biola just welcomed its largest incoming class this fall since the pandemic, surpassing enrollment goals. Biola is a nationally-ranked Christian university in the heart of Southern California.
