CSU Athletics Honored For Academic Excellence
Our Colorado State University athletes aren't just talented, they're smart, too.
According to a press release from CSU, "a record-high four Colorado State athletic programs was honored for having a multiyear APR in the top 10 percent of their sports across the country."
These programs include men's golf, women's basketball, women's cross country, and women's golf.
Excellence in academics AND athletics is top of mind at CSU, and Director of Athletics Joe Parker commented on the achievement in the press release as well:
I couldn’t be prouder of the work these four programs have put in to achieve at the highest level in the classroom [...] It speaks to their work ethic as individuals and their coaches as program leaders to balance the workload required to succeed both academically and athletically.
This is the first time in the 15-year history of the Public Recognition Award program that CSU was honored.
