OCCC announces student honors for Winter 2021 term
Even as Oregon Coast Community College plans a Fall 2021 term that will look a lot more “normal” than the current academic year – with many more in-classroom, on-campus courses planned along with enhanced student events and activities – students in the year of the pandemic continue to adapt to distance learning over laptops and mobile devices in living rooms, kitchens, and cars.
“We continue to be overwhelmed with admiration for our students as they navigate this unprecedented year,” said OCCC President Dr. Birgitte Ryslinge. “One cannot help but be awed by the way Oregon Coast students have stepped up to the pandemic conditions and continued working towards their academic goals with such tenacity and grit.”
Excelling academically at the college level is always praiseworthy, but to be able to do so in such trying circumstances is even more impressive. The Oregon Coast Community College family is honored to announce the recipients of the College’s Honor Roll, Dean’s List, and President’s List for Winter 2021.
To be eligible, students must have completed a minimum of six graded credits during the term, and have met the GPA requirements for the given level of honors.
