Despite the uncertainty and new demands faced by all learners this past year, nearly one-quarter of SOEST’s undergraduate students in Atmospheric Sciences, Global Environmental Sciences and Earth Sciences made the Dean’s List in the Fall 2020 semester.
To earn the Dean’s List recognition, students must complete a minimum of 12 credits and attain a semester grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
“Distance learning has been an adjustment and challenge,” said Heather Saito, SOEST Student Academic Services Advisor. “Many of our students were able to rise to the occasion and be successful in this format. These students should be very proud of their academic accomplishments, especially while overcoming the difficulty of this new learning environment.”
“This group of SOEST students showed their determination and perseverance,” added SOEST Dean Brian Taylor. “We applaud all of our students who persisted during these unparalleled times and especially congratulate the Dean’s List recipients for their hard work and dedication to excellence.”
SOEST was established at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in 1988 in recognition of the need to realign and further strengthen the excellent education and research resources available within the University. SOEST brings together four academic departments, multiple research institutes, several federal cooperative programs, and support facilities of the highest quality in the nation to meet challenges in the ocean, earth and planetary sciences and technologies.
