Gallup Study: Undergraduate Experiences and Post-College Outcomes of NCAA Student-Athletes

In Gallup’s 2020 study on the college experiences and life outcomes of college graduates who competed in NCAA athletics in Divisions I, II or III, data showed NCAA student-athletes engaged in important undergraduate experiences at higher rates than their nonathlete peers. Former student-athletes were also more likely to be thriving in many post-college domains.

These findings came from interviews of nearly 5,000 former NCAA student-athletes and 69,000 nonathlete graduates from the same colleges about their college experiences and current well-being. This was a follow-up to Gallup’s 2016 study.
