University of South Carolina student-athletes continued their “winning streak” in the classroom in the Fall of 2014, according to Maria Hickman, Associate Athletics Director for Academics/Student Development. The overall departmental grade point average (GPA) of 3.208 continued the streak of at least a 3.0 average for the 16th-consecutive semester.

“Achieving a departmental GPA above a 3.0 for 16 consecutive semesters is remarkable,” said Hickman. “The Dodie academic staff, administration and coaches offer the best resources available. Our ultimate goal is to graduate our student-athletes,” she continued.
“The time commitment and dedication shows how our students embody the term student-athlete. They understand the importance of being a student before an athlete.”

Over 350 student-athletes earned GPAs above 3.0 for the fall. Forty-five of those student-athletes earned President’s List, a 4.0 GPA, while 145 earned Dean’s List, a 3.5 or better GPA.

Women’s tennis garnered the highest GPA of all teams for the fall semester, recording a 3.542. Both men’s basketball (3.299) and women’s track & field/cross country (3.501) notched its highest GPAs to date.
