East Carolina University freshmen and transfer students who earned a 3.0 GPA or higher during the fall semester were recognized for their academic achievements on Feb. 1 as part of the annual ECU Excels program.

Nine colleges and the major advisement program for students who have yet to declare a major are holding ceremonies to honor the students within their departments. Two colleges — the College of Technology and Computer Science and the Harriot College of Arts & Sciences — will host events on Friday.


According to Stephanie Bailey, an academic advisor and coordinator of the Excels program, 2,209, or 41 percent, of first-time freshmen and transfer students made the honor roll, dean’s list or chancellor’s list during the fall. Among these students, the average GPA was a 3.5 out of a possible 4.0.
