Our 2015-16 Varsity Challenge is nearing the end with women's basketball leading the way in highest percent participation rate this year at 19.2%. Women's soccer is currently winning the challenge for percent increase in giving participatoin over last year at 40%. This friendly year-long competition amongst our varsity team's former athletes has shown great success with an overall giving participation rate of nearly 13% right now and we have two months to go.
At the end of the year, the sport with the highest participation in giving and the highest participation increase over last year will be awarded $1,000 each to their program. If you make a gift by June 30, 2016 your gift will be matched 1:1, so $100 becomes $200 to the fund of your choice!
Thanks to you -- GVSU continues to be the leading Division II program in athletics in the country. The Laker Athletics program captured our 10th Learfield Sports Directors' Cup, which is the national all sports trophy. More importantly, 68% of our student-athletes achieved a 3.0 GPA or better for the Winter Semester. Your GVSU Lakers are performing at a high level in the classroom as well as in their competition. Thank you again for your continued support!
