Dictionaries and Athletes

I really just liked this idea. Period. Basically, I liked how this note talks about the increased focus on academic as well as athletic success for the Oregon State basketball team. I can speak from the experience of having been a student athlete and I cannot emphasize enough that there is a great need at ANY level to take care of academics first. Many would think this would be common sense, but it’s not always the case. Furthermore, motivating young athletes to be the best they can be — both on and off the court — is crucial in the development of the next generation of global thinkers.

And I agree…”it’s great having a president who is also a Motivator/Challenger in Chief.” I’m excited to see what the future will bring!
