Miami athletes earn all-time high GPA


For the fifth consecutive semester, Miami University student-athletes have achieved an all-time high grade-point average in the classroom.

During the Fall 2012 semester, the RedHawks combined for a 3.185 GPA, topping last spring’s 3.17 and the previous fall’s 3.16 average. It was the highest GPA recorded since the university started tracking intercollegiate GPAs in the fall of 2005.

Additionally, 16 of Miami’s 18 teams averaged a 3.0 GPA or above last semester.

“Our coaches do an amazing job of recruiting talented student-athletes,” said Craig Bennett, assistant athletic director of academic support services. “I think a big factor is our intervention learning specialists (ILS). Because of the support (student-athletes) get through that program, it has made a big difference.”
