Do you expect college athletes to maintain high grades?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 6, 2005
“If they are on scholarship, I would certainly expect them to keep their grades up - if they’re getting a free ride.”
“I was a college athlete, so yes I do. It’s difficult to maintain grades with all the practices and everything, but it can be done.”
“To an extent, because they represent the university in more than just athletics.”
“I don’t think thereshould be any lower expectations for athletes than any other student. Academics should be their primary concern, not athletics.”
