The True Definition of a Student-Athlete
Please join me in congratulating Emmanuel Engulu, who has just been named a University Scholar by the College Society Advisory Board. To be named a University Scholar, a student must exhibit the highest level of academic achievement with the goal of serving Christ in the university community. A student applying to become a University Scholar must have at least a 3.5 GPA, a recommendation from a faculty member, written statements describing his or her Christian faith, and a Statement of Intent to Earn a PhD. As a final step in the process, the candidate is interviewed by members of the College Society Advisory Board.
