The USAO Honor Roll recognizes students whose grade point average is 3.5 or higher for 12 or more hours of class work (seven or more in the summer term). The Regents Honor Roll recognizes those who have been named to the USAO Honor Roll for three or more consecutive trimesters. The honor rolls were created to recognize and encourage academic excellence.
More than 195 students at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or greater during the summer 2011 trimester and were named to the university’s honor rolls, USAO records officials have announced.
Dr. Stephen Weber celebrates the life and legacy of classical composer and pianist Franz Liszt in a solo recital starting at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Alumni Chapel at USAO.
He was the first musical superstar. In one 12-year period of his life, he performed some of the most technically difficult piano music ever composed more than a thousand times in more than 350 cities. He is thought by many critics to be the greatest pianist of all time.
His name was Franz Liszt and 2011 marks the 200-year anniversary of his birth.
To celebrate Liszt’s legacy and shed light on lesser-known aspects of his prolific career, Dr. Stephen Weber is slated to host a solo faculty recital featuring Liszt’s music and its connections to artwork, literature, poetry, and drama. The recital is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Alumni Chapel on the campus of the University of Science and Arts.
