324 Student-Athletes Receive Academic All-Star Honors
The Academic All-Star student-athletes at Long Beach State were celebrated with a pre-game dinner and halftime ceremony at last Thursday's men's basketball home game. Presented by Southern Wine and Spirits of California, the event was attended by academic and campus personnel, corporate partners, select donors, and student-athletes as a celebration of their academic successes.
"Too often success in intercollegiate athletics is evaluated by victories and championships, but we are most proud of those student-athletes who are Academic All-stars demonstrating a commitment to academics and graduation," said Athletics Director Vic Cegles. "To be sure, that is the true measure of an outstanding sports program and a tribute to our coaches and the Bickerstaff Academics Center."
During the 2014 calendar years, there were 324 Academic All-Stars; 197 in the Spring 2014 semester and 214 in the Fall 2014 semester. 87 of those student-athletes were Academic All-Stars in both semesters.
Furthermore, 37 Student-Athletes earned a 4.0 grade point average, while 70 Student-Athletes earned a place on the President's List with a 3.75 GPA or better. 81 LBSU Student-Athletes earned a place on the Dean's List with a GPA between 3.5 and 3.74.
