Georgia Tech has a rich history of successful athletic programs including its football program which has seen numerous legends of the game at The Flats. As rich as its athletic programs are, Tech is equally well known for its strong academics. This means that its student athletes are presented with a rare opportunity when they attend (and more importantly graduate from) Tech. As this article points out, the NCAA recently released data and again Tech student athletes have performed impeccably — Tech has an 89% NCAA Graduation Success Rate. Yellow Jackets athletic directory Todd Stansbury perhaps says it best: “Once again, I’m very proud of the data that shows that student-athletes are thriving at Georgia Tech.” #GoJackets
With the Masters Tournament behind us it’s time to look forward to the next tournament on the PGA tour. According to this article, as many as six former Yellow Jackets golfers currently on the tour may be in the field for the RSM Classic in Sea Island, Ga. The tournament starts this week. Of course, the big news from last week was Tech golfer and amateur (soon to be pro) Andy Ogletree’s finish as the low amateur in last week’s Masters.

Tech will take on both UGA and FSU, as the article mentions. Good luck to the Yellow Jackets swimming and diving team! #THWG
