Bloomfield honors brightest at Dean's List Awards Program

Bloomfield College honored some of its best and brightest academics on Oct. 20, as 111 students were recognized for their achievements in the classroom during the 2012-2013 academic year at the Dean’s List Awards Program in Van Fossan Theatre.

Published at the end of each semester, the Dean’s List is based on academic performance as measure by grades achieved during that semester. Students who are awarded “Honors” have achieved a Quality Grade-Point Average of 3.5 or better, while students who have achieved a GPA of 3.8 or higher earn the distinction of “High Honors”.

The scholarly audience was treated to remarks from Bloomfield President Richard Levao, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty Dr. Marion Terenzio and a special student speaker during the presentation, with Dean’s List recipient and Elementary Education major Shama Perveen telling a life story of perseverance and dedication to her lifelong goal of becoming a teacher.

An Indian immigrant who came to the United States at the age of 10, Perveen came to Bloomfield after a stay at Hudson County Community College, and credited the institution’s caring academic environment for giving her the opportunity to reach her potential.

“The professors here are truly amazing,” Perveen said of the College’s faculty. “Not only have they helped me in my college life, but they have set an example for me in terms of how to live my personal life. They have inspired me to do my best, and challenged me to live up to my potential. It is because of their teachings and my hard work that I’ve made it to the Dean’s List here at Bloomfield.”
