Posted July 11, 2008
LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Two-hundred forty-five Bucknell University student-athletes have earned dean's list honors for the 2008 spring semester.
Students must earn at least a 3.50 grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale) for selection to the dean's list.
Included among the student-athletes on the dean's list last semester were 40 team captains and 27 student-athletes earning perfect 4.0 averages.
In addition, 239 winter and spring sport student-athletes were named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll this past semester.
To earn honor roll recognition, a student-athlete must earn a varsity letter and achieve a grade-point average of 3.20 or better during the semester of competition.

With the selection of Jason Buursma (baseball) and David Mante (track and field) to ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America teams this spring, Bucknell continues to rank fifth among all Division I institutions with 116 all-time Academic All-America selections.
In addition, Buursma earned the Patriot League’s highest honor when he was named the league’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
In April, the NCAA handed out Public Recognition Awards based on Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores, and 17 Bison programs were honored. That was the fourth-highest total in the nation based on percentage of total sports offerings. Bucknell’s four-class average graduation rate also ranks fourth in Division I.
