May 24, 2018

BOCA RATON, Fla. - (May 24, 2018) - Florida Atlantic University student-athletes completed the 2018 spring semester with a 3.007 cumulative grade point average (GPA). The academic achievement was the result of nearly 58% of the university's 414 student-athletes recording above a 3.0 GPA.

"Maintaining a departmental 3.0 GPA is a fantastic accomplishment over six-semesters, especially with the growth in participants as well as competitive success," said Brian White, FAU's vice president and director of athletics. "Our goal of Winning in Paradise includes every facet of our student-athletes lives."

For a third-straight year, the Owls posted a GPA above 3.0, a streak that began during the 2015-16 academic year, when the program averaged above a 3.0 GPA for the first time since its move to NCAA Division I in 1993-94.

Every women's varsity team earned above a 3.0 GPA with women's golf posting a 3.717 team GPA. The women's varsity average 3.329 GPA is the highest mark in program history. Four of the eight men's teams posted GPA of 3.0 or above. Men's tennis, who vied for the Conference USA Tournament title, led the way with a 3.395 team average.

"The academic success of our student-athletes is a testament to their commitment to excellence in all that they do," said Dr. Kimberly Dunn, associate professor and FAU NCAA Faculty Athletics Representative. "It also reflects the dedication of the advisors, faculty, coaches, staff, and administrators who support our students in their academic endeavors."

In total, 237 student-athletes posted a 3.0 GPA or above. The Spring 2018 President's list included 24 student-athletes while 40 made their respective college's Dean List.
