UND student athletes post record 3.277 GPA during fall semester

University of North Dakota Director of Athletics Brian Faison announced today that UND’s 455 student-athletes combined for a 3.277 grade-point average during the Fall 2014 semester, the highest single-semester GPA in UND Athletics history.

Eighteen of UND’s 21 teams had a GPA of 3.0 or greater during the fall semester. UND’s women’s teams combined for a 3.370 GPA while the men’s teams recorded a 3.174 GPA.

“The ’student’ clearly does come first for the student-athletes at UND,” said Faison. “Congratulations to our student-athletes, our coaches and our academic services staff, led by Amanda Hajdu and her staff of Stacy Bjorlie and Calin Burger, for another record-breaking semester of academic successes.”

Sixty-nine percent (316-455) of UND’s student-athletes recorded a GPA of 3.0 or better during the fall semester, including 70 individuals who earned a perfect 4.0. Additionally, 65 percent (294-455) of UND’s student-athletes own a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, including 28 with a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA.

In all, 74 percent (336-455) of UND’s total student-athlete population landed on the Fall 2014 Athletics Director’s Honor Roll for achieving either a fall semester or cumulative 3.0 grade-point average. Those student-athletes will be recognized at halftime of UND’s Feb. 5 women’s basketball game against Southern Utah.

In 2013-14, UND’s student-athletes achieved a 3.177 grade-point average to break the single-year department record of 3.173 previously set in 2011-12.
