This week Division III athletic programs across the country will celebrate Division III Week and all of the student-athletes, programs, coaches and administrators that make DIII sports a unique and positive experience.
Susquehanna University sponsors 23 varsity sports and with nearly 25 percent of the student body participating in our athletic programs, athletics are a large and important presence on campus.
This week, Susquehanna selected four individual student-athletes out of the many qualified individuals across campus to highlight. They reflect what makes SU student-athletes unique and also serve as exemplary models of what Division III student-athletes represent.
