Student-Athlete Academic Achievement Celebration

The Student-Athletic Academic Achievement Celebration was established in 2014 as a way to recognize and celebrate standout student-athletes who are excelling in their field of study while balancing the challenges of being a student-athlete.

The top five junior and senior student-athletes with the highest GPAs from each of the six undergraduate colleges are invited to a brunch with the athletics staff, university administration including the President, Provost, Dean of Education, Faculty Athletics Representative, and are asked to invite an influential professor to join in the celebration.

In 2014, the average GPA of the 27 students invited was 3.75. Of the 29 students invited in 2015, the average GPA was 3.80.
