WALTHAM, Mass. – 117 Bentley University student-athletes have received 2017-18 Academic Achievement Awards from the Division 2 Athletics Director Association for their success in the classroom last academic year.
The 117 honorees were tied for the second most in both the Northeast-10 Conference and the East Region, as well as tied for the 11th highest total nationally. Putting that into perspective, there are more than 300 Division II institutions across the country.
Requirements to receive an Academic Achievement Award include a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale, have completed a minimum of two years of college level work and be an active member of an intercollegiate team during the 2017-18 academic year.
"As an Officer for the D2 ADA Board, it has pleased me to see the number of student-athletes recognized for their academic achievements continue to increase," said current D2 ADA President Jim Johnson, director of athletics at Pittsburg State University. "This program is a point of pride for our current D2 ADA member institutions and a great way for their student-athletes' achievements to be recognized nationally. On behalf of the D2 ADA, we congratulate and celebrate these academic distinctions and are proud of your accomplishments."
