Grades are Higher if you Play Squash!

The Department of Athletics announced the academic results of Smith College’s intercollegiate athletes today – and once again athlete GPAs are higher than the average student.  Why?  “If you want something done give it to a busy person”!.  What we do not see mentioned is our Captain Alice Reznickova’s perfect 4.0 GPA:) A good grade at a top school – way to go!
