Description

This book provides faculty and student-athletes with a greater understanding of how to successfully transfer the skills they possess into the academic realm. 

 

The College Experience for Student Athletes encourages student-athletes to take time to think about how the inherent skill set they possess can be enhanced and transferred from performance on the playing field to the classroom. As a result of the media spotlight they are often marginalized due to preconceived notions - but need guidance and support just like other students. This resource guides faculty and student-athletes to appreciate each other’s roles on campus, bring about respect for each other, and ultimately a greater appreciation of higher education. It includes the information necessary to communicate and build relationships that will lead to greater academic success in the first year, but also references the entire academic experience.
