The College Experience for Student Athletes provides faculty and student-athletes with a greater understanding of the unique qualities and time commitments student-athletes have while striving for academic success.


This text provides student-athletes with a greater understanding of their ability to succeed by transferring skills they already possess into the academic realm. Few athletes take the time to critically think about the inherent skill set they possess as an athlete and how these skills can be enhanced and transferred from performance on the playing field to the classroom. Student-athletes are in the media spotlight and are many times marginalized due to preconceived notions, but need guidance and support, just like other students. This book provides greater understanding to both faculty and student-athletes to appreciate each other’s roles on campus, and with a greater understanding comes respect for each other and ultimately leads to a greater appreciation of higher education. It also provides student-athletes with the information necessary to communicate and build relationships on campus that will lead to greater academic success. The primary focus is on student-athletes first year, but references the whole academic experience as well.
