Scholar-Athletes Earn National Recognition

After an undefeated season in the MAAC, followed by a MAAC Championship, the Fairfield women’s volleyball team continued to receive national recognition. College Factual ranked the team among the Top 50 in the country for Division I women’s scholar-student athletes. Women’s soccer also received student-scholar national rankings as the top 10 percent among Division I women’s soccer programs.

College Factual uses data from the NCAA and US Department of Education, among others, to rank schools based on athletic competitiveness, using polling from coaches and journalists; college quality, including caliber of student body, education resources, degree percentage, and post-grad earnings; academic progress rate, which considers passing courses and academic eligibilty to play; and athletic aid per student.
