Brooklyn Braniacs: Kings County scholars dominate prestigious “President’s List” at Berkeley College

Brooklyn’s hitting the books!

A whopping 41 Kings County students made the prestigious President’s List at Berkeley College during the spring 2019 semester.

The President’s List at the college — which has campuses in Manhattan, New Jersey, White Plains, and Downtown Brooklyn — honors scholars who achieved an impressive 4.00 grade-point average with a course-load that included 12 credits or more, and demonstrates not only intelligence, but an outstanding work ethic, according to the college’s actual president.

“I am proud of our students and their academic accomplishments,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. “Their work ethic and talent will serve them well as they prepare to graduate and progress toward their future successes.”

Below the President’s List is the still admirable Dean’s List, which featured 124 Brooklyn students who earned a 3.5 grade point average.

Berkeley, originally founded in 1931, has 7,000 students, 350 of which are international students, in their masters, bachelors, associates and certificate programs across their seven campuses in New York and New Jersey. Students can study in 20 different career fields including degrees in business, health studies and liberal arts.

US News and World Report have honored Berkeley for providing an exceptional online bachelor’s program and online program for veterans for five years running.

Sadly, Berkeley is closing their Brooklyn school at 255 Duffield St. following the end of the current semester on Dec. 31, and will be transitioning students and faculty to the university’s Midtown and White Plains campuses
