Five University of CT athletics teams posted ideal Graduation Success Rates (GSR) and a total of 13 Husky squads performed at 90 percent or higher, as announced by the NCAA on Wednesday, November 8.
Graduation Success Rate is a calculation of how many athletes graduate within six academic years of college enrollment. The University of Arkansas has steadily improved its GSR rate since the measurement was implemented 13 years ago rising from an initial rate of 60 percent to 80 percent in the numbers released on Wednesday.
Razorback student-athletes that entered school in a four-year period from 2007-10 earned a school record GSR of 80 percent.
"Every day, in everything they do, our student-athletes, coaches, staff and administration strive for comprehensive excellence, including results in the classroom, athletic venues and community", Penn State Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour said.
Harry Potter Console Games Are Coming And They Sound Interesting
Rumors of a Harry Potter mobile game previously surfaced last year when Niantic announced it had acquired the rights to the app. The makers of the once immensely popular Pokémon Go are now making a Harry Potter AR game, Tech Crunch reported today.
Virginia Tech's GSR combined for all of its varsity sports listed (women's golf hadn't been added as a varsity sport and thus is not part of this report) was 90 percent - three percentage points above the national average.
Tech had an 82 percent GSR for the 2016-17 year, according to data released by the NCAA.
Arkansas baseball had a GSR score of 65, which is nine points lower than last year's score of 74.
"We stress student success in all aspects of the University's mission, and this institutional goal extends to the education and achievement of our student-athletes", University President Marc Johnson said. The NCAA also calculates the federal graduation rate for student-athletes because it is the only rate by which to compare student-athletes with the general student body. "There are few better moments than when we see our student-athletes earn their degrees". Six teams have a 100 percent GSR: men's fencing, rifle, pistol, men's volleyball, women's tennis and women's volleyball.
Data Sheet-At Long Last, Flying Cars Are on the Way (Probably)
Areas the flights could serve include Downtown LA, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, and a site within close proximity to LAX. Proposed take-off and landing zones equipped with aircraft charging stations have not yet been built.
All 13 of Gonzaga's countable programs finished above the national average in their respective sports.
The GSR accounts for students who transfer into an institution, including midyear enrollees, and does not penalize schools for outgoing transfer students who leave in good academic standing.
The Marsha Sharp Center for Student Athletes has spaces for private study, computer labs, supplemental-instruction classrooms and a private conferencing area for tutoring and mentoring appointments for the student athletes at Tech, according to the release.
