This weekend, Purdue Athletics saw 81 Student-Athletes Graduate from our great university.
Congrats to all 81 of our spring graduates.— Purdue Athletics (@PurdueSports) May 15, 2021
You've persevered through a lot the last two years, but now you can call yourself graduates of one of the most-prestigious universities in America! #BoilerUp pic.twitter.com/g3IUwF2dKh
Being a Student-Athlete at any university is no small task. Being one at Purdue, is even harder. Often referred to as one of the toughest Public Universities in the United States, it is impressive to graduate there as a normal student. Then throw in hours upon hours of practice, games and travel.. it is even more impressive.
When watching the above video, it is apparent they are students first and athletes second. There are athletes that majored in engineering, management, accounting, finance, among many.
Purdue generally has some of the highest graduation rates for athletes in the nation.
Some of the notable players that graduated:
- Sasha Stefanovic
- Aaron Wheeler
- Dedrick Mackey
- Jack Plummer
- Joe Schopper (Doctor of Pharmacy!)
- Keena Turner!
Congratulations to all Boilermakers this weekend that graduated! Enjoy the next giant leap!
