Four Peoria natives were named to the dean's list at Biola University in spring 2022.

About 1,600 Biola students were placed on the dean's list to honor those with a GPA of 3.6 or higher while enrolled in 12 or more credits and whose cumulative GPA is at least 3.2.

The following Peoria students were recognized on the dean's list: Robin Ahlquist, majoring in Psychology; Makenna Laird, majoring in Pub Relations and Strategic Communications; Julianne Marziano, majoring in Communication Sciences Disorders; and Kylee Messmer, majoring in Communication Sciences Disorders.

"Inclusion in Biola University's dean's list is reserved for students who demonstrate exceptional performance in their academic studies. This honor signifies hard work, engagement and investment in scholarship," said Tamara Anderson, associate provost of Academic Effectiveness and Administration. "These attributes are the building blocks of continued success, not only in the classroom, but in the workplace and in the students' personal lives. We celebrate these students and their achievement, looking forward to their future accomplishments."

Biola University is a nationally ranked Christian university in the heart of Southern California, according to a news release. It was recently recognized as one of America's best colleges, earning a spot in the top tier of the "best national universities" category of U.S. News and World Report's Best Colleges 2023 rankings.

Founded in 1908, Biola is committed to the mission of biblically centered education, scholarship and service - equipping men and women in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. With more than 6,000 students at its Southern California campus and around the world, Biola's nine schools offer more than 150 academic programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.
