Caroline Slavin Named to Dean's List at Westminster College

2012 Feb 3

Caroline Slavin, from Brashear, MO, was named to the Fall 2011 Dean's List for exemplary academic performance at Westminster College, located in Fulton, MO. Slavin is a Junior at Westminster.

The Dean's List recognizes those Westminster students who have shown high academic performance during the past semester. To be included on the Dean's List, a student must have a 3.60 semester grade point average with at least 12 hours completed that semester.

A total of 313 Westminster students were named to the Dean's List. The List includes 62 freshmen, 80 sophomores, 79 juniors and 92 seniors.

"I commend these students for their outstanding academic achievements on behalf of everyone in the Westminster College community," says Westminster President Dr. George B. Forsythe. "These students represent what we do best at Westminster---prepare the kind of strong leaders that will make their mark in our global society through lives of success, significance and service."

Founded in 1851, Westminster College is one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation, according to the rankings of U.S.News & World Report. Forbes magazine selected Westminster as one of America's Top Colleges and Universities, the Best Liberal Arts College in Missouri, and one of the Best Liberal Arts Colleges in America. The Princeton Review recently named the College as one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest for the tenth straight year. Newsweek-Kaplan named it "One of the 372 Most Interesting Schools in America" and Westminster has also been recognized as one of 240 Colleges of Distinction. This selective college for men and women is situated on an 86-acre residential campus with small class sizes taught by an excellent faculty. Westminster is a challenging academic environment where students are educated to lead and inspired to succeed.

Westminster College is internationally recognized for hosting major leaders such as Sir Winston Churchill who made his famous "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster in 1946. This one historic moment has led to a steady procession of world leaders bringing their messages to Westminster over the years, including four U.S. Presidents, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher and Lech Walesa. The Winston Churchill Memorial and Library in the United States on campus, the only museum in North America totally devoted to Churchill's life and work, underwent a $4 million renovation in 2006 and is now a state-of-the-art interactive showcase, symbolizing Westminster's educational mission to graduate the world's future "leaders of character." Recently, this beautiful facility was given the designation The National Churchill Museum by the U.S. Congress.
