BOSTON, Mass. — Jai Aslam, of Belgrade, and Ashlee Whitelaw, of Readfield, recently were named to the 2017 spring semester dean’s list at Northeastern University.

Aslam is a mathmatics major and Whitelaw is a pharmacy major.

To achieve the dean’s list distinction, students must carry a full program of at least four courses, have a quality point average of 3.5 or greater out of a possible 4.0 and carry no single grade lower than a C- during the course of their college career. Each student receives a letter of commendation and congratulation from their college dean.

In addition to achieving distinction through the dean’s list, Aslam is a member of the University Honors Program, which offers high caliber students the chance to further hone their studies and interests, live in special interest on-campus housing, and participate in one or two honors courses each term. Invitation into the honors program is highly competitive and students must maintain a high GPA and strong commitment to campus leadership to remain a part.
