Scholar AthletesFrom the classroom to the court, from books to balls and bats-Virginia Wesleyan's scholar-athletes understand the meaning of balance.These extraordinary Marlins were honored during the women's basketball game on December 9 in the Convocation Center of the Jane P. Batten Student Center.

Students-athletes recognized were those who are a member of at least one NCAA Division III athletic team at VWU and were named to the President’s List and the Dean’s List for the Spring 2017 semester.  President’s List is awarded to students earning a 4.0 GPA and the Dean’s List is awarded to all students who earn at least a 3.5 GPA.  Both indicate a careful balance among course work, co-curricular activities, and athletics.

Thanks to State Farm for sponsoring the State Farm/Virginia Wesleyan University Scholar-Athlete Recognition.  VWU appreciates the support from State Farm Agents Larry Akers, Rhonda Floasin, Pierre Granger, Jessica Hester, and Joe Query.

Congratulations to the following student-athletes named to the Spring 2017 President's List and Dean's List!
