CBU Honored with NCAA Academic Excellence Award

After posting a successful Academic Success Rate, CBU is being honored with an Academic Excellence Award by the NCAA.

As part of the Division II Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence program, now in it’s fourth year, CBU will be honored after seeing a graduation success rate of 90 percent among its student-athletes. CBU earned this accolade alongside 20+ additional Division II institutions for achieving four-year ASRs of 90 percent or higher.

“This year’s Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence honorees are outstanding examples of Division II’s success in the classroom and off the field,” said Tom Haas, president of Grand Valley State University and chair of the Division II Presidents Council. “We are delighted to share in their successes and commend them for their continued excellence.”

The Academic Success Rate measures graduation success for Division II schools and includes virtually all Division II student-athletes, including transfers and those not receiving athletics scholarships. In 2012-13, only 62 percent of Division II student-athletes receive some level of athletics aid.

The Division II ASR also captures about 54 percent more student-athletes than the federal graduation rate. Unlike the federal graduation rate, the ASR also counts student-athletes who transfer to a school after initial enrollment elsewhere and removes from the rate student-athletes who leave school while academically eligible. The national four-year ASR is 71 percent.

Five CBU Soccer Players Named All-Academic

Gulf South Conference Sports Information Directors and Faculty Athletic Representatives named five Christian Brothers University soccer players to the FireSeeds Academic All-GSC Teams, and 30 athletes earned spots on the GSC Fall Academic Honor Roll.

Three players represented CBU on the women’s soccer Academic All-GSC Team. Midfielder Carmen Manes (’15) was a first-team All-GSC player while carrying a 3.33 GPA in liberal studies. Midfielder Camilla Rodrigues (’16) was a Second-Team All-American and First-Team All-GSC selection while carrying a 3.43 GA in civil engineering. Defender Gabrielle Pilgrim (’17) joined them on the Academic All-GSC team, carrying a 3.94 GPA in English. She was a Second-Team All-GSC selection as a sophomore, anchoring the defense again this season.

Two players represented CBU on the men’s soccer Academic All-GSC Team. Defender Sean Rutter (’15) was a first-team All-GSC selection and carries a 3.47 GPA in business administration. Forward Kevin Tikhomiroff (’16) has a 3.27 GPA in business administration while playing a key role as midfielder.

The women’s soccer team placed 13 players on the GSC Fall Academic Honor Roll, followed by 10 men’s soccer players, three men’s cross country runners, three women’s cross country runners and one volleyball player.

To be nominated for the Academic All-GSC Team, student-athletes must carry at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA and be starters or significant contributors to the team. Freshmen and first-semester transfers are ineligible. SID’s and FAR’s of GSC member schools conduct a joint vote to select the winners. The Academic Honor Roll comprises all players who carry at least a 3.00 cumulative GPA and participate in at least one game, match or meet against outside competition.

Lasallian Collegians: Five Core Principles

Lasallians refer to five core principles to guide them in life: Concern for the Poor and Social Justice, Faith in the Presence of God, Inclusive Community, Respect for All Persons, and Quality Education. This semester, Lasallian Collegians will explore a different principle every month.

Faith in the Presence of God: This was important to St. John Baptiste de La Salle. Although many trials came his way while he was beginning the De La Salle Christian Brothers, he maintained his faith and knew that all that he was doing was in God’s Hands. A phrase that we see often that came from La Salle is “The work is yours, Lord.” La Salle had faith in God that everything would work out. Maybe not how or when La Salle expected, but it would still work out.

On Thursday night, January 29, the Lasallian Collegians invite everyone to the LLC Commons for a Hot Chocolate Social with the Brothers! There will be hot chocolate and a time to talk with the Brothers and the Lasallian Collegians!

Red Cross Blood Drive

The Red Cross is holding a Blood Drive on campus on January 27 in the Swashbuckler, 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. At this drive, you can give:

Blood: The most common type of donation, during which approximately a pint of ‘whole blood’ is given. This type of blood donation usually takes about an hour.
Double Red Cells: A Double Red Cell donation collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor.  These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have type A Neg, B Neg, or O blood.

Why Give?
Blood is essential for life: it carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, fights infections, and helps heal wounds. And everyone has this self-generating resource that can be generously given to others—when and where it is needed most.

  • Accidents happen 24/7 that put our friends, family, and neighbors in danger
  • Blood transfusions save the lives of cardiac patients during surgery
  • Premature infants come into the world often needing blood to survive

You or someone you know will need blood.
If not personally in need, at some point we will all know a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker who needs a blood transfusion. In fact, 1 out of 3 people will need blood in their lifetime. From natural disasters to unforeseen catastrophes, emergency hospital procedures to life-long battles with chronic diseases such as sickle cell, the demand for blood is constant. The supply is not. And since there is no substitute, only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives.

 

Flu Advice

As many of you are aware, this year’s influenza vaccination does not provide full protection against the particular influenza strain that has been circulating this winter.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the vaccine only reduces the risk of serious disease by 23 percent. Nonetheless, the CDC recommends people still get a flu vaccine. The vaccine may lessen the severity of the symptoms and help prevent serious complications that might arise from contracting the disease. If symptoms are treated within 24-48 hours of onset, there are 3 anti-viral medications that can lessen the duration & severity of the flu symptoms. You will need to visit or call your local physician/clinic for definitive influenza testing and treatment with anti-viral medications. If you have been diagnosed with the flu, please contact Health Services at 321-3260 for help with tracking the illness on campus and possible accommodations during your illness.

The CDC recommends a three step approach to fighting the flu which includes obtaining a flu vaccine, seeking early treatment for symptoms and everyday preventative measures.

Listed below are a few of the preventative measures:

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick with “flu-like” symptoms, stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone. Fever must be gone without the use of fever reducing medications.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands often with soap & water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

Additional information concerning the flu can be found at www.CDC.gov. Any further questions, please contact Heather Harrington in Health Resources Monday-Friday in the Thomas Center, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
