Science student-athletes honored for academic achievement

The College of Science is proud of 16 science majors who are not only a member of an OSU athletics team, but were recently recognized for their stellar achievement at the annual Oregon State Athletics Academic Achievement Dinner on April 24. Maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA is no small feat given that student athletes juggle practice and competition with studying and classes.

Brad Vomocil, a sophomore mathematics major, navy officer and Corvallis native, was singled out for his outstanding 4.0 GPA. Currently, a member of the men’s rowing team, Brad served six years in the U.S. Navy before starting college and plans to continue serving as an officer upon graduation. He is also a third generation Beaver: His grandfather, James Vomocil, is an emeritus professor in crop and soil science. (Pictured in the middle above).

Congratulations to all of science student-athletes who have put in countless hours training and traveling to games while still successfully tackling a rigorous course of study in science.  Go Beavs!
