Friday, January 10, 2014

One hundred and twenty-six students participated in Butler University's 2013 Winter Commencement on Dec. 22.

Local students participating included ISABELLA GABBARD, an education administration major from Bainbridge, and ASHTON MARSHALL, a middle/secondary education major from Reelsville.

Challenging and enabling students to meet their personal and professional goals has guided Butler University since 1855.

The university enrolls more than 4,700 undergraduate and graduate students in six academic colleges: Arts, Business, Communication, Education, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Located just six miles from downtown Indianapolis, Butler's urban setting affords students internship opportunities that provide excellent graduate school and career preparation.

Six local students recently earned a position on the University of Evansville dean's list for academic achievements during the 2013 fall semester: MELISSA BALL of Greencastle, majoring in athletic training; SARAH DORY of Greencastle, majoring in theater; CODY FOREMAN of Cloverdale, majoring in mechanical engineering; CHELSEA MODGLIN of Reelsville, majoring in biology; EVAN PIERCE of Brazil, majoring in history; and Katrina Woody of Greencastle, majoring in creative writing.

The students made the Dean's List by achieving at least a 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

"At the University of Evansville, students thrive under personal guidance from faculty mentors," said UE President Thomas A. Kazee. "Earning a place on the dean's list shows a strong commitment to academic success, and students and their families should be very proud of this accomplishment."

The University of Evansville is a private, liberal arts-based university with a full-time undergraduate enrollment of approximately 2,400. UE's diverse student body represents 42 states and 46 countries.
