WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel College has announced its Dean's List from the Spring 2017 semester and 125 Green Terror student-athletes.

To qualify for the Dean's List, a student must achieve a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.50 for the semester. A GPA of 3.5-3.699 earns a student Honors according to the College. A GPA of 3.7-3.899 earns a student High Honors while a GPA of 3.9 or above qualifies for Highest Honors.
