Worthington student on WPI dean’s list
WORCESTER, Mass. — Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has announced that Jack Johnson of Worthington, a member of the class of 2023 majoring in mechanical engineering, was named to the university's dean's list for academic excellence for the spring 2020 semester.
The criteria for the WPI dean's list differs from that of most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA). Instead, WPI defines the dean's list by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.
"WPI's academic programs are rigorous and require a level of independence beyond what is required in traditional courses. WPI students work on open-ended problems for communities around the world. The problems are important and the impact is real" said dean of undergraduate studies Arthur C. Heinricher. "Some of this nation's best and brightest students come to WPI to study engineering and science and business and the humanities. Those named to the dean's list have excelled in all of their work, and we are exceptionally proud of these outstanding students."
