Lillian Nagengast, daughter of John and Sunny Nagengast of Bloomfield, Nebraska, received academic honors at Boston College by making the University Dean’s List with First Honors for the Fall semester 2017. It is Lillian’s sixth consecutive semester on the Dean’s List.
The Dean’s List recognizes the achievement of undergraduates semester by semester. The Dean’s List classifies students into two groups; First Honors (3.700-4.000) and Second Honors (3.500-3.699).
A senior at Boston College, Lillian is majoring in English and minoring in Women’s and Gender Studies in the University’s Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences. She is a member of the Club Equestrian Team and is involved in 4Boston, a weekly service organization.
Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1863, Boston College is one of the largest Catholic universities in the United States, with an enrollment of approximately 14,500 undergraduate and graduate students drawn from all 50 states and approximately 90 countries.
Its faculty of eminent scholars is dedicated to teaching, both at the undergraduate level and in its nationally-noted graduate programs in education, law, management, nursing and social work.
Though it has grown in size, stature and diversity, Boston College remains focused on its founding Jesuit mission to offer students a transforming educational experience: to help them develop both their intellect and their character and to encourage them to lead lives of faith, integrity and service to others.
