Worcester Polytechnic Institute has named the following residents to the university’s dean’s list for academic excellence for the spring 2013 semester:

Shaine Grogan of Peru, a senior majoring in civil engineering.

Serena Makkaoui of Pittsfield, a senior majoring in management information systems.

David Markham of Hinsdale, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering.

Michael Cross of Pittsfield, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering.

Mitchell Hunt of Pittsfield, a sophomore majoring in aerospace engineering.

Truman Chojnowski of Adams, a freshman majoring in electrical and computer engineering.

Adam Lemoine of Adams, a freshman majoring in mechanical engineering.

Samantha Swartz of Sandisfield, a freshman majoring in robotics engineering.

The criteria for the WPI dean’s list differs from most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average. Instead, WPI defines the dean’s list by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.
