The transition from high school to college is significant. Our program strives to find a balance between supporting each student athlete's individual needs while allowing them space to create their own collegiate experience.  Each student-athlete is challenged to take ownership of their output and take on the responsibility of being self-advocates. It is important for me to get to know each student-athlete to understand how they work most productively. 
The four pillars of our academic success are:
A foundation of good habits is built in the early stages of the process of growing their independence throughout their college experience. 
The process:
  • Student-athletes are expected to build relationships with their faculty/staff members and work one-on-one with them to navigate each course.
  • Instructors, deans, faculty advisers and other designated campus personnel are the primary resources for the student-athletes. 
  •  The coaching staff is there to support each course syllabus and reinforce the expectations set by each instructor.
  • Study tables are mandatory both at home and on the road for student-athletes new to the program (freshmen and transfers) and student-athletes with a cumulative GPA lower than a 3.0.
  • Random grade checks for student-athletes deemed at-risk.
