Academic honors for 48 Aggie students at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture were announced Wednesday for the fall semester which featured 16 weeks of in-person classes at the campus in Curtis.

“I am proud of these students making the Deans’ List and Honor Roll during a challenging time of their college journey,” said NCTA Dean Larry Gossen.

“The ability for NCTA to conduct in-person classes on campus with extensive hands-on learning was advantageous to all of our students and their instructors,” Gossen added.

Students must be fulltime enrollees, with at least 12 credit hours for the semester to be eligible for the academic designations. The only two-year campus of the University of Nebraska system, NCTA offers academics solely in veterinary technology and agriculture sciences.

Thirteen students earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average for the Dean’s List, Gossen said. The 35 students with a GPA of 3.5 to 3.99 are on the Dean’s Honor Roll.

Classes began Aug. 24 and concluded Friday (Dec. 11) with final exams. Honor students represent eight states.

While some universities and colleges conducted many of their courses remotely, NCTA had in-person experiences in classroom, laboratories, limited traveling, competition teams, and field experiences such as at the NCTA campus farm, livestock facilities and the veterinary technology complex.
