[April 19, 2008]  NAPERVILLE -- North Central College has named junior Wesley Tucker, son of Kelly and Rory Tucker of Mason City, to its dean's list of scholars for the spring term.

To be eligible for the dean's list, undergraduate students must maintain a grade-point average of 3.6 (4.0=A) for the term and be enrolled as full-time students. Part-time students are recognized at the end of each academic year if they meet the same criterion and have completed at least eight credit hours, the equivalent of one term as a full-time student.

Founded in 1861, North Central College is an independent, comprehensive college of the liberal arts and sciences that offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and graduate programming in six areas. Located in the historic district of Naperville, which was rated by Money magazine as second among the nation's best places to live, North Central College is just 30 minutes from Chicago's Loop. With more than 2,000 full-time undergraduates and nearly 550 part-time undergraduate and graduate students, North Central College has a commitment to academic excellence; a climate that emphasizes leadership, ethics, values and service; a curriculum that balances job-related knowledge with a liberal arts foundation; and a caring environment with small classes.
