The Suffolk University Athletics Department announces that 145 of the 206 student-athletes enrolled in full-time fall 2015 classes achieved a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher for the semester and were thus named to the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll.
Student-athletes from the 13 Rams varsity teams maintained an average GPA of 3.19 for the semester.
“With nearly 70 percent of our student-athletes achieving this recognition, it shows that academics do not take a back seat to athletics,” said Director of Athletics Cary McConnell. “Our student-athletes continue to exhibit the skills necessary to make them well-rounded individuals, which correlate into the department’s goal of bolstering a foundation for our student-athletes to be as successful as they can be in all areas of life. This accomplishment is a direct reflection of their commitment to excel and an achievement that our coaches, staff, and the University can be proud of.”
