South Dakota Mines has honored 721 students in the Spring 2024 semester for academic excellence. The university named 639 students to the Spring Dean’s List, and 82 students to the Spring 2024 Academic Recognition List. The Dean’s List recognition is for full-time students while Academic Recognition is for part-time students.

“The number of students achieving academic excellence this semester is a testament to the dedication of our students in learning and applying the curriculum, our talented faculty leading the classrooms, and our comprehensive tutoring and other student success initiatives at South Dakota Mines,” says Mines Dean of Students Joseph Dlugos, Ph.D. “Many of the students on this list graduated on May 4, and we can’t wait to see how they impact their industries and communities.”
