This fall’s incoming undergraduate class at the University of Iowa – a group that includes Emily Tain of Greensburg – has yet again topped previous records in achievement with a higher average high school grade-point average, at 3.81, than any previous class, the Iowa City, Iowa, campus announced Friday.

The average high school GPA for the classes of 2024 and 2023 were 3.78 and 3.76, respectively.

Tain is majoring in distance and online nondegree in Iowa’s University College.

The Latrobe Bulletin prefers that campus news come from colleges and universities. Students must fill out a release form, giving the school permission to send the info to the newspaper.

Students also must indicate which newspaper they want to receive the releases.

Only in cases where the school does not send out releases will the Bulletin accept info from the student, but a copy of the letter/program they received from the school and a parent’s daytime phone number must accompany the info for verification.
