Modesto Junior College has named 1,021 students meeting the criteria to the Dean’s List for the spring 2014 semester. This acknowledgment is reserved for students who have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher with no grade lower than a C, and must have completed at least 12 degree-applicable units that semester.
Students are recognized for their Dean’s List achievement with a letter of congratulations from the college president, as well as a letter of invitation to join Alpha Gamma Sigma, one of the campus’ honor societies.
The purpose of Alpha Gamma Sigma is to foster, promote, maintain and recognize scholarship;
develop programs offering cultural and social experiences as part of the total experience
of the college; promote service to the college and the community and emphasize the
development of leadership, character, and judgment.
Students who are named to the Dean’s List may also be eligible for membership in Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society that recognizes the achievements of students attending two-year colleges. Through seminars, conferences, community projects and fun events, the organization offers members a chance to grow in scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship. The purpose of MJC’s Beta Mu Theta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is to promote scholarship, the development of leadership and service, and the cultivation of fellowship among qualified students at the college. Phi Theta Kappa is known for support and encouragement in the transfer process of four-year universities, including exclusive scholarships and transfer opportunities.
Contact information for the two honor societies is available on the student clubs page of the MJC website: http://www.mjc.edu/studentservices/sdncl/clubs.php.
