The Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics is proud to announce 110 student-athletes named to the WSSU Fall Dean’s List.

The CIAA Football Champion Rams led the way with 30 student-athletes on the list, while baseball finished second with 18 student-athletes. WSSU cheerleading had 14 members, CIAA Women’s Cross-Country Champion, indoor and outdoor track had 13 members and CIAA Volleyball Champions Rams had 11 members.

Students are eligible to be named to the Dean’s List at the end of each semester based on a student’s status as a full-time student (12 semester hours and above).  Dean’s List honors are awarded only to those students who earn a scholastic grade point average of 3.0 or higher in 12 or more credit hours of graded coursework at WSSU in an academic semester, with no grade below C and no incomplete (I) grades on the report.

“In order to be a student-athlete, it takes dedication and time management in the classroom and on the fields of competition. WSSU Athletics takes much pride in providing the athletes the resources and tools necessary to succeed,” says Director of Athletics Tonia Walker.

“We are thankful for the strong partnership of the UCALL (University College and Lifelong Learning) staff and their time and effort to monitor and guide our student-athletes academically.  This type of academic success speaks to the coaches and athletic staff who are constantly supporting their teams in the classroom and being a part of positive encouragement for their Winston-Salem State University education,” added Walker.
