Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges
Providence, R.I. — Thirty eight Providence College seniors have been named to the 2012 edition of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. The annual listing recognizes outstanding campus leaders nationwide.
Campus nominating committees and editors of the annual directory selected students based on their academic achievement, and exclusively those who have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.85, in addition to service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities, and potential for continued success. The Providence College undergraduates join an elite group of students selected from more than 2,000 institutions of higher learning in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several foreign nations. Outstanding students have been honored in the annual directory since it was first published in 1934.
