While at WCSU, Lanza maintained a 3.26 GPA but excelled in computers, economics and history classes. The Daily News reported back in December:

[College Spokesman Paul] Steinmetz said Lanza received an A-minus in website production and an A in a computer programming course, but could only muster a C in ethical theory.

He also received an A-minus in American history since 1877. But he withdrew from German language and data-modeling computer science courses because he didn’t want his poor performance to drag down his grade point average.

His overall GPA for the six classes that he completed was 3.26,” said Steinmetz, adding that Lanza also took courses in philosophy and macroeconomics.

Although he is reported to have been interested in German, he dropped out of the class.
