For the ninth straight year, Siena student athletes out-performed their Division I peers in the classroom by a wide margin. Using the most recent data released in October the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) report, student athletes who entered Siena as freshmen in 2006 graduated from college at a 93% clip, the eighth-highest rate in the nation.
Twelve of Siena’s Division I sports posted perfect 100% cohort GSRs, and 16 of the 18 out-performed the cohort national average. Siena sports that achieved perfect cohort GSRs were: men’s cross country, men’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s cross country, field hockey, women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, swimming and diving, women’s tennis, volleyball and water polo.
