What people are saying

“Student-athletes are successful in the classroom and in competition because of the university-wide emphasis on balancing academics and athletic success. They learn to set priorities so they can balance the time demands. They seem to have an innate drive to be successful in all of their endeavors and leave campus prepared to excel  in life.”

- Christine Hailey, College of Engineering Dean and Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Utah State University
