Recipients of this honor must earn a 3.75 grade point average or higher while participating in a conference-sponsored sport. In addition, the student-athlete must display positive conduct on and off campus and be enrolled full-time at a member institution. The conference states, “Its commitment to serve the educational needs of its student-athletes is the hallmark of the Empire 8.”

Leading the pack at Fisher was the football squad, who totaled 16 members on the list. Not far behind was the women’s track and field team and the women’s soccer team, who each placed nine members on the list.

Fisher’s 105 athletes join 792 other student-athletes from the Empire 8 who made the President’s List. The total 897 student-athletes marks the most in Empire 8 history, eclipsing the 883 that made it in fall 2016.
