Engineering Student Earns Honor While Studying in Germany

EASTON, PA (08/08/2013) — Thomas Todd of Uncasville has been named to the 2013 spring semester Dean’s List at Lafayette College. To qualify for Dean’s List, a student must achieve at least a 3.60 semester grade point average out of a possible 4.0. Thomas, a mechanical engineering major in the Class of 2015, is a graduate of Montville High School.

Thomas spent the 2013 spring semester studying engineering, German language and culture in Lafayette’s faculty-led program at Jacobs University Bremen in Germany. The program enables Lafayette engineering students to study abroad while keeping current with the requirements for their major, taking classes from Lafayette professors as well as those at host institutions. They also take part in field trips, which are planned and led by Lafayette faculty with the help of local organizers.
