4 SLU AT Students Named to Fall 2013 A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll

Four Athletic Training students are among the 115 student-athletes from Saint Louis University named to the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the 2013 fall semester. This number is above the A-10 average of 101 and Saint Louis' number of 96 honorees a year ago. The Atlantic 10 Conference equaled the second-highest average of student-athletes honor on its bi-annual Commissioner’s Honor Roll, with 1,313 honorees, an average of 101 per institution for the 2013 fall semester. 

To be listed on the Commissioner's Honor Roll, a student-athlete in an Atlantic 10-sponsored sport must have a 3.5 GPA or better (on a 4.0 scale) during the specified semester. Freshmen are eligible to receive the award.

The 101 average equals the number set in the spring of 2013 and is just one behind the record average of 102, set in the 2012 fall semester. It also marks the sixth straight semester that over 1,300 student-athletes have earned the distinction.

Academics are a point of pride in the Atlantic 10. In addition to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the league also ranks fifth among all conferences in the NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) and fifth in the Academic Progress Rate (APR).
