The Oglethorpe athletic department saw 66 student-athletes named to the SAA Student-Athlete Academic Honor Roll for the 2016-17 winter and spring seasons Friday. The 66 Oglethorpe student-athletes joined a total of 1,033 from around the SAA to earn a spot on the academic honor roll.
In order to qualify to be on an SAA Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must maintain a 3.25 GPA for the term during which they're engaged in athletic competition. They also must be a regular member of a varsity athletic team in a sport sponsored by the conference.
Academic success is one of the key tenets of the GA2MES Plan for all 16 Oglethorpe athletic teams. The GA2MES Plan is an athletics-wide initiative to foster growth and involvement between athletics and other parts of campus.
The SAA Academic Honor Roll recipients from Oglethorpe are as follows:
