We are happy to publish the President’s List and Dean’s List as a service to our students and their families. Before you call or e-mail about these lists, please read the following:
Q: I’m a graduate student and my name is not on the list, but it should be.
A: Graduate students are not eligible to be on these lists.
Q: I’m a part-time student and my name should be on the list, but it’s not.
A: To be eligible for inclusion, students must be undergraduates taking at least 12 semester hours for which they receive letter grades.
Q: I still think I should be on the list, but I’m not.
A: Carefully re-read the first paragraph of the posting, which explains who is eligible for these honors and make sure you are qualified. If you still feel you should be on the list, but aren’t, please contact Jean Beaver at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-328-7112.
Q: My name is on the incorrect list.
A: Carefully read the first paragraph of the posting, which explains who is eligible for these honors and make sure you are qualified. If you still feel you are on the wrong list, please contact Jean Beaver at email@example.com or 828-328-7112.
Q: My name is listed under the incorrect city or state.
A: The President’s List and Dean’s List are compiled using the “hometown” or “preferred address” you gave to the Registrar’s Office. If you want the list to contain a different address, you will need to change this information with the Registrar’s Office.
Q: Can I have press releases sent to more than one newspaper?
A: Due to time and staff limitations, we do not provide this service. If you want additional newspapers to publish this information, we suggest you contact these newspapers directly. Any publication wishing to publish this information is welcome to download it from our website.
Q: Why hasn’t my local newspaper published my name yet?
A: Check the date that this item was posted on our news website (at the top of each posting), then add two to three more weeks. This is the average time it takes most newspapers to publish these news items, but some take longer.
Many larger newspapers do not publish Dean’s List or President’s List news items.
Q: I’ve waited 2-3 weeks, and my local paper still hasn’t published this item. What should I do?
A: Call your local newspaper and politely ask if they publish these types of releases. If the answer is yes, ask if they have received this release from Lenoir-Rhyne. If not, it is possible it has been accidentally deleted or lost in cyberspace. It is also possible we were unable to determine which paper we should send your release to, or that we do not have a correct e-mail for that paper.
Ask the person at the newspaper for the e-mail address where these items should be sent. Then e-mail the name of the newspaper, newspaper e-mail address, plus your name, and the name of the list you are on, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Most newspapers will not publish the names of out-of-area students.
Q: Why is it taking so long for the President’s List and Dean’s List to be posted on the website?
A: We generate these lists as quickly as possible after the end of each semester. However, we have limited time and staff.
Thank you for reading this far!! You get an A+ for following directions and will do well in life!
