EMU Athletics Celebrates DIII Week

EMU Athletics Celebrates DIII Week

Across the country, athletic departments will be celebrating their student-athletes and the impact of college athletics with Division III Week from Apr. 2-8, 2018. The Eastern Mennonite University athletics department will highlight the impact of athletics on our campus community and the student-athletes that make up our department.

Division III Week is a positive opportunity for all individuals associated with NCAA Division III to observe and celebrate the impact of athletics and of student-athletes on the campus and surrounding community. The true essence of Division III athletics is the full integration of student-athletes into the campus culture and to stand for the three D’s of the Division - to discover, develop and dedicate. This week is dedicated to celebrating our student=athletes and supporting them to, “follow your passion and develop your potential.”

Anyone interested in following Division III Week can do so through EMU Athletics social media, including Twitter @EMU_Athletics, Instagram @EMU_Athletics, and on Facebook
