Personal best academic performances

FAYETTEVILLE — A total of 88 University of Arkansas student-athletes have been recognized by Razorback Athletics for posting personal-best grade point averages in the fall semester. The student-athletes, who earned their collegiate best term GPA, helped the Razorback program post an overall student-athlete GPA of 3.059 for the fall 2011 semester. The personal best program was established to encourage and reward student-athletes for doing their best regardless of their individual cumulative grade point average. By focusing on improving academic performance each semester, student-athletes can increase academic performance while progressing to their ultimate goal of graduation. “We challenge our student-athletes to strive for continuous improvement in their chosen sport, academic pursuits and in life,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said. “We want to encourage them to strive to improve their GPA each semester. We are extremely proud of the student-athletes who have accepted the challenge to give their very best in the classroom. Achieving a personal best is a tremendous achievement and worthy of recognition.” Fourteen football players paced the group of student-athletes who recorded personal bests last semester. The Razorback swimming and diving team had 12 student-athletes who had career-bests while women’s cross country, track and field had 11 top GPAs.
