graduation cap

Rutgers Athletics set a school record with an overall Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 in the NCAA’s annual report of Division I institutions. The Scarlet Knights women’s teams in basketball, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, swimming and diving, and tennis achieved a perfect GSR of 100. Fifteen of the 20 sports programs maintained their GSR from last year or improved, boosting the athletics program overall rate to 85 or better for 10 straight years. “Every day, we are proud of our student-athletes, and every day we are given even more reason to be so,” says Pat Hobbs, the director of athletics at Rutgers University–New Brunswick.
