Preparing Student-Athletes for College

Professors on WNYE 91.5 Thursday April 12 at 5:00pm

NCAA March Madness is over and the euphoria and sadness of basketball fans is now tapering off. But what many people don't realize is that now the student-athletes have to return to an equally difficult task, completing their college education.

St. Francis College Adjunct Associate Professor Arthur Kimmel and Long Island University Professor Bob Nathanson will be talking about that issue and the overall challenges student-athletes face on Thursday, April 12 at 5:00pm on the WNYE 91.5 show, "On The Sidelines". Kimmel and Nathanson have just released their new book, The College Athletes Guide to Academic Success, a primer for both students and parents on the perils, pitfalls and perks to being student-athlete.

"College athletes have demands on their time and lives that make them unique on campus. The average accounting major does not have to worry about traveling to away games, being interviewed by the media or being labeled by their professors as a 'dumb jock' and asked to drop a class," said Professor Kimmel.

The book is written with an eye to the high school student who is seriously considering playing a sport on the college level. It also provides important information for parents, telling them what to expect when their child agrees to play ball.

Inside are interviews with almost three dozen academically successful athletes, as well as professors and college administrators, offering multiple perspectives on the life of a college athlete and how to manage the stress and strain of mixing academics with athletics.

St. Francis College, founded in 1859 by the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, is located in Brooklyn Heights, N.Y. Since its founding, the College has pursued its Franciscan mission to provide an affordable, high-quality education to students from New York City's five boroughs and beyond.
