Rice Athletics and the R Association honored some of its best and brightest on Sunday evening as the 2017 Rice Scholar Athletes and Honor Athletes were honored during the 31st annual Scholar Athlete Banquet in the R Room at Rice Stadium.
Sponsored by the ‘R’ Association, Rice University Scholar Athletes are selected from a pool of Honor Athletes (3rd, 4th, and 5th year student-athletes that maintain a 3.3 GPA) during the spring semester of every academic year. Each varsity team may honor up to three roster members with the title of Scholar Athlete and awardees are determined by the OAAA (Office of Academic Advising for Athletics) in conjunction with the Athletics Department coaching staff. A student-athlete’s GPA is the primary factor for review in each selection process. However, a student-athlete’s major, year in school, and athletic contributions may also influence the final decision.
