Joe Powell: Men's Swimming, Junior, Biotechnology Major
"Joe comes off a spectacular fall semester pursing rigorous coursework in the sciences and biotechnology. This spring, he continues this pattern of excellence by earning strong mid-term grades in all of his current coursework, all the while living up to the demands of swimming. Joe represents the best of the true scholar-athlete." Dan Woodside, Director of Academic Services for Olympic Sports
Marissa Borschke: Women's Soccer, Redshirt Freshman, Legal Studies Major
"Marissa is on her way to a great finish in her second semester at IU. Pursuing admission to the Kelley School of Business is no easy task and over the course of two semesters Marissa has proven that she is up to the challenge. Marissa has been able to excel in rigorous coursework because she is willing to put in the time and effort needed to do well. When it comes to academics, Marissa is as determined as you can get."
