DUNMORE, Pa. -- Penn State Scranton students who have attained a grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher and completed at least 15 credits at the campus were recognized during a special program honoring them for their achievement.

Assistant Director of Student Services and Engagement Dharti Ray organized the event and students were recognized by Chancellor Marwan Wafa before an audience of their peers with a certificate commemorating their accomplishment.

"You should all be very proud of what you have achieved," Wafa told the students. "I know you have all worked very hard and studied very hard to get to this point, and we are all proud of you and your efforts."

A total of 320 students attained the honor, and over 55 of them attended the program earlier this month to receive their certificates.
