Academic Success

Unread post by firemoose » Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:38 pm

I know myself and others have posted information about our academic success in threads where each sport is covered but I thought, with the new school year starting, that it would be a good time to put a general thread up where everything academic related, whether a single sport or the overall program, could be placed. I'll get this thread pinned to the top to make it easier to find.

Good place to start is this from the Sun Belt site.

http://sunbeltsports.org/news/2017/8/15 ... emics.aspx

NEW ORLEANS – Over 2,100 Sun Belt Conference student-athletes were named to the 2016-17 Commissioner's List and Academic Honor Roll as announced by the league office Tuesday afternoon. The list is comprised of 1,087 student-athletes on the Commissioner's List and 1,044 student-athletes on the Academic Honor Roll list.

The Commissioner's List honors student-athletes who maintained a 3.5 grade point average or better during the 2016-17 academic year while the Academic Honor Roll honors those student-athletes who maintained a GPA between 3.0 and 3.49 for the academic year.

Appalachian State University had the highest number of honorees with 237 student-athletes between the two lists (114 on the Commissioner's List and 123 on the Academic Honor Roll). Georgia Southern University had the second most student-athletes between the two lists with 195 total. Georgia State University totaled 189 student-athletes between the Commissioner's List and Academic Honor Roll. The Panthers placed 105 on the Commissioner's List and 84 on the Academic Honor.

Women's soccer had the largest number of student-athletes on the Commissioner's List with 152 followed by Women's track & field and cross country which had 141. Football led all sports on the Academic Honor Roll as 252 student-athletes were named to the list. Women's track & field and cross country was second with 133 on the Academic Honor Roll.

Friends, this is why we're Yosef! On average, one in five student-athletes is a first generation college student. Think of the long-term impact on the economic standing for the athletes and their families that your donation makes.


Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Strive for wisdom.
