Four recent graduates capped their careers as members of the Academic Honor Roll. Brian Davila '12, who recently received a degree in Economics & Business, posted a 3.57 grade-point average this spring to complete a four-year sweep of Academic Honor Roll nods. Mechanical Engineering graduate Chris Boyce '12 adds an Academic Honor Roll selection to his spot on the Academic All-Patriot League team with a 3.83 GPA.
