THE TOP 25 STORIES FROM VCU ATHLETICS IN 2011-12 - #15 - NEARLY 30 STUDENT-ATHLETES EARN DEGREES

RICHMOND, Va. – With the 2011-12 athletic calendar complete for VCU, we here at VCUathletics.com thought we would try to recap what was a year full of thrills, excitement and another year of growth for the movement known as Ram Nation.

After a long debate, some wrestling matches and name-calling, our crew came up with the top-25 stories from VCU Athletics in 2011-12, which we will unveil one-by-one of the course of the next 25 business days (Monday-Friday).

If you have any thoughts or comments, our Twitter handle is @VCUAthletics, we’d love to hear from you.

Today, we look at #15 on our countdown.

#15 - Nearly 30 student-athletes earn degrees

Each year, Ram Nation celebrates hundreds of victories, championships, all-conference awards and much more. However, the main purpose of Ram Nation and its athletic department is to support the nearly 275 student-athletes in their quests to earn their college degree.

Mark 2011-12 as another successful year in that category with nearly 30 student-athletes making the walk across the stage and picking up their degrees from VCU.
