Crystal Harrell of Santa Barbara Named to Dean’s List at Biola University

By Brenda Velasco for Biola University |

Crystal Harrell of Santa Barbara was one of 1,594 students who were named to the Dean's List for fall 2013 at Biola University.

Biola students are placed on the Dean's List to honor those with a grade point average of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in 12 of more credit units and whose cumulative grade point average is at least a 3.2. This past fall, 25 percent of Biola students achieved this academic goal.

"Inclusion on the Biola Dean's List is an indication that this student is performing exceptionally well in a rigorous academic program," vice provost for undergraduate education Patricia Pike said. "Our Dean's List students are bright, motivated, engaged, competent and personable. They are already demonstrating the characteristics of success that results from applied intelligence and that will support future endeavors in society, community, career and family life."

Biola's grade point average requirement for the Dean's List is one of the highest among Southern California Christian universities.

Biola University is a leading Christ-centered university in Southern California that offers a premier, nationally ranked education within the setting of an all-Christian community. Founded in 1908, Biola is committed to the mission of biblically centered education, scholarship and service — equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ.
