Calvin University announces fall 2019 Dean’s List

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan—Calvin University announces its fall 2019 Dean’s List. Calvin is a top-ranked Christian, liberal arts university, and earning a spot on the Dean’s List requires that a student maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average for the semester and have at least a 3.5 cumulative grade point average.

Calvin yet again received high marks in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges Guidebook, ranked #3 in the Regional Universities Midwest category. The institution is also included in places like Princeton Review’s The Best 385 Colleges, the Fiske Guide to Colleges and America’s Top Colleges published by Forbes, to name a few.

Calvin continues to be viewed as a global institution as well. In the most recent Open Doors Report, which is published by the Institute of International Education, Calvin ranked in the top five among all master’s colleges and universities for the total percentage of undergraduate students who participate in a short-term study abroad experience. That study abroad happens on six different continents and in more than 30 different countries, where students explore everything from education in Zambia to business as mission in India to issues of justice in Honduras.

In all things, Calvin remains committed to its mission of equipping students to think deeply, to act justly, and to live wholeheartedly as Christ’s agents of renewal in the world. The institution prepares students for not only their first job out of college, but also for a lifetime of success and service. And the university’s innovative Calvin LifeWork program further bolsters that claim. The four-year, co-curricular program helps students prepare for life and work after graduation. In a recent survey, 99 percent of Calvin grads reported that they have either secured a job or begun graduate school within nine months of graduation.

Established in 1876 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Calvin has a 2019–2020 enrollment of 3,570 students, representing almost every U.S. state, six Canadian provinces, and 63 other countries around the globe.
