On Friday, April 11, students were recognized for their academic achievements. The afternoon began with 68 students being inducted into Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD). ALD is an honor society that recognizes academic achievements of students in their first or second semester of their freshman years. Students must have a 3.5 GPA or higher and be in the top 20 percent of their class to be eligible for induction into ALD.

Later in the afternoon, 16 students were inducted into the Alpha Chi National Honor Society. Membership in Alpha Chi is limited to the top 10 percent of juniors and seniors and is open to students from all academic disciplines. The day closed with the Dean's List Dinner. Dean's List students and their families were invited to join Dr. Sharon Dettmer, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty, to celebrate the students' academic success.
