Chase Sonnemaker of Washington was recognized for receiving highest honors with a semester GPA of 4.00 at Cornell College on its Dean’s List for the fall 2019 semester.

Twice each year--at the end of January and the end of May--the Dean of the College recognizes those students who have earned superior grades during the previous semester and enrolls them on the Dean's List based upon their semester grade point average. 

Cornell College's picturesque campus is located in Mount Vernon, Iowa. One of the "Colleges That Change Lives," Cornell College is a national liberal arts college with a distinctive One Course at A Time curriculum. Students take one class for 18 days, which provides students the chance to dive into their studies and focus more intensely on the classes of their choice. Cornellians learn with the unique freedom to shed the confines of the traditional classroom-studying off-campus, pursuing research, or accepting an internship-all without missing out on other classes.

With a student body from 45 states and 13 foreign countries, and renowned visiting speakers, faculty and entertainers, Cornell offers the world from its hilltop campus.
