Including Cal Lutheran there are 446 Division III institutions around the country. During the week of April 8-14, all members will host Division III Week, aimed at celebrating what those schools have to offer student-athletes in the classroom, in the field of play and in the community.
In mid-January at the NCAA Convention a number of legislative proposals were brought to the table. One heavy topic was that of contacting prospective student-athletes via Social Media, which will now be allowed at the Division III level.
Cal Lutheran Athletics is proud to announce its participation in the inaugural NCAA Division III Week, April 9-15, which has celebrated academic achievement, athletic accomplishment, leadership and community service among CLU student-athletes.
It started in a little room in the humanities building. It eventually
moved to the Lundring Events Center, where everyone assumed it would
remain for many years.
But the numbers just kept increasing, so this year's Cal Lutheran
Scholar-Athlete Society induction banquet had to be held in the Gilbert
Sports and Fitness Center.
On Wednesday, Apr. 6 institutions
of higher learning will celebrate student-athletes across the country as part
of National Student-Athlete Day. The program of the National Consortium for
Academics and Sports (NCAS), has been celebrated annually on this date since
afternoon a gathering of CLU community members congregated to take part and
witness the groundbreaking ceremony for the William Rolland Stadium on the
campus of California Lutheran University. It comes at an appropriate time after
the Kingsmen football team defeated then No. 4 Linfield this past Saturday.
