Student-Athlete GPA's Rise Again

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - In addition to their on-field successes, Seton Hall student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. The cumulative GPA for all Seton Hall student-athletes has reached a new-high for the second consecutive semester at 3.223, up from 3.207 in the fall.

“We are obviously pleased that our student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom,” Director of Academic Support Services Matt Geibel said. “It’s a testament to their hard work in both their academic and athletic endeavors as well as the supportive environment provided by our coaches, the athletic administration, and the University faculty.”

This achievement is also result of the commitment displayed by Seton Hall academic support staff in the continued pursuit of academic excellence and a balanced student-athlete experience.   

The volleyball team compiled the highest GPA for the spring semester at 3.646 and completed the year at a 3.533 average to lead all programs. Women’s soccer and tennis were close behind for the year, posting 3.483 and 3.415, respectively.

The men’s swimming and diving program led on the men’s side, putting together a 3.301 GPA in the spring to finish the cumulative year with a 3.308 GPA.

In 2010-11, 158 student-athletes were named BIG EAST Academic All-Stars. The number reflects 67 percent of the student-athlete population and was an increase from 140 the previous year.
