124 Spartans To Be Recognized for Their Classroom Achievements

SAN JOSE, Calif.—Continuing to build champions in the classroom, San José State University student-athletes excelled in the classroom as 124 student-athletes and cheer and dance squad members will be recognized as either a President's Scholar or Dean's Scholar at San José State.
The 61st annual Honors Convocation, to be held on Wednesday, April 12 at 6 p.m. inside the Provident Credit Union Event Center, will recognize undergraduate students designated as President's Scholars for the Spring and/or Fall 2022 semesters.  The celebration will honor over 2,400 undergraduate students who achieved the distinction of President's Scholars.

A Dean's Scholar is a San José State student with a 3.65 or higher grade-point average in a semester during the same academic calendar.
There are 34 student-athletes from 15 sports who are designated as a President's Scholar. Women's water polo had seven President's Scholars, followed by women's golf, volleyball/beach volleyball and men's water polo with three each.
All 22 sports are represented among the 124 honorees, including six teams who have double-digit honorees – women's soccer with 18 honorees; women's gymnastics with 13 honorees; women's water polo with 12 honorees and women's swimming and diving with 11 honorees.
