Buccaneer athletics celebrates NCAA Division III Week

April 10, 2012 at 7:03 am

All this week, Beloit College Athletics is joining programs nationwide in the first celebration of NCAA Division III Week. 

A significant percentage of student-athletes participate at the Division III level, competing for the love of whatever sport they're involved in. NCAA Division III is the largest and most diverse of the NCAA's three divisions, with more than 440 members, 40 conferences and 170,000 student-athletes.

Division III Week was designed to celebrate the unique Division III student-athlete experience, which offers a highly competitive athletics environment, a commitment to academic excellence and time to pursue other interests. This week is designed for all individuals associated with a Division III institution or conference to observe the impact of athletics on the campus and surrounding community, as student-athletes engage in activities focusing on academic accomplishment, athletic experience and leadership/community service/campus involvement.
