Local students enrolled in college are now returning from their academic year, but now is the time that colleges and universities across the country announce last semester’s successes from local students.  We’re happy to see that so many are doing well and have achieved academic honors:

At Curry College, John Przesiek of Manchester has been named to the Spring 2023 Dean's List.  Curry College was founded in Boston in 1879 as a private, co-educational, liberal arts-based institution and is now located on 131 acres in Milton, Massachusetts. The College extends its educational programs to a continuing education branch campus in Plymouth. 

Two Manchester residents— Jackson Strout and Anna Yankee—have been named to the Dean's List at Hamilton College for the spring 2023 semester.  Strout is a rising senior majoring in economics and government, and Yankee is a rising junior majoring in environmental studies.  To be named to the Dean's List at Hamilton, students must carry a course load of four or more graded credits throughout the semester and have earned an average GPA of 3.5 or above on a 4.0 scale.  Hamilton College is a liberal arts institution located in Clinton, New York where students explore passions through an open curriculum and robust research, internship, and off-campus study opportunities.
