ACADEMIC RECOGNITION

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR'S HONOR ROLL
The Athletic Director's Honor Roll recognizes those student-athletes who have represented Butler University through participation in intercollegiate athletics during the specified fall/spring semester, and achieved either a 3.25 semester/cumulative grade point average. Traditionally, almost half of the current Butler student-athlete's achieve this recognition on a regular semester basis. Additionally, all student-athletes who achieved a perfect 4.00 for that respective semester are recognized, as well as the top four male and female teams which have the highest team grade point average for that specific semester.

The list of the names of the various award winners are posted at the end of each fall/spring term in the Athletic Academic Support Program Office area, and in the glass case outside the men's basketball office.

    JOSTEN'S SCHOLAR-ATHLETE RECOGNITION DAY
    Butler student-athletes have long been respected for their ability to combine academic success in the class room with athletic success in their respective sport. The "Josten's Scholar-Athlete Recognition Day" was founded during the 1999-2000 school year to recognize exceptional academic achievement during the previous calendar year. In order for a student-athlete to receive this recognition they must have achieved a 3.25 semester and/or cumulative grade point average during the previous calendar year, when they were representing Butler University as a member of an intercollegiate athletic team. As part of a men's basketball half-time program, all student-athletes who are award winners are personally recognized for their academic achievement during the fall/spring semesters of the previous calendar year. Additionally, each award winner is listed in the game program for that day's competition, and a Josten's representative has traditionally presented a financial donation in support of the athletic department's tutoring program.
