Transcript man receives a 50-page student-athlete's handbook, a collection of NCAA forms and rules, university registration schedules, responsibilities on the part of the student-athlete and the "Total Person Program," hints on test taking and suggestions on time management. Moreover, all Missouri freshmen must attend a 10-week study skills improvement course on Sunday evenings. Topics include everything from organization for the first day of classes to computer practice and advice on coping with the combined stresses of athletics and academics. Those identified as "high risk" students receive special reading improvement tutors as well as individualized help for all classes. The program, which also includes drug education, has been widely used as a model for academic excellence around the country. Results were evidenced by 117 student- athletes, or a quarter of those in the Missouri athletics department, earning grade point averages of 3.0 or better in the fell of 1988. "The football and basketball players have overwhelming demands by the public and the media," said "Total Person Program" Director Dr. Chris Sinatra-Ostlund. "We give them the other side. We tell them the attention is not that big a deal. It won't continue forever." Colorado Academic Coordinator Theo Gregory also heads up a comprehensive support system called the "Total Person Program." As proof that academics come before athletics, freshmen and transfers are required to attend study table from 7:30- 9:30 a.m. each weekday. All others with a grade point average under 2.3 must attend four morning study tables. Gregory said the timing is intended to get students when they are fresh in the morning instead of tired from a long day of classes and practice. Gregory creates his own competitive setting. Players with the highest grade points at each position on the football team have their pictures in a hallway on the Academic Starters team. Student-athletes in all sports with the top grades earn "Gregory Scholar" sweatshirts. Junior tailback Eric Bieniemy, an All-America candidate, claimed he has no specific rushing goals, only a desire to earn a Gregory sweatshirt. Gone are the days when student-athletes slide through on non-academic coursework that rarely leads to a degree. "We just don't offer a path of least resistance," said Gregory. Missouri's Sinatra- Ostlund said: "This is a difficult academic institution and there are no easy ways to go. It's a shock for the freshmen that they have Academic support programs for student-athletes are becoming a budgetary priority at numerous schools. that much work to do." Gregory's walls are filled with pictures of himself and Gee at graduation surrounded by athletes in their caps and gowns. The next goal at Nebraska is tracking graduation rates. Osborne is pushing the football team in that direction, with a rule Anthony Avent sat out his freshman season at Seton Hall due to Proposition 48 and worked his way on to the Dean's list. no one can leave for the summer unless he has completed 30 hours of course work for the previous two semesters — six more than required by NCAA academic progress rules. "The football and basketball players have overwhelming demands by the public and the media. We give them the other side. We tell them the attention is not that big a deal. It won9t continue forever." — Dr. Chris Sinatra-Ostlund Director of the Missouri 'Total Person Program" And at Seton Hall, Cunningham is encouraged by the players who return after their eligibility has expired. "Many of these guys have a lot of money waved in front of their faces from the NBA or European teams," Cunningham said. "They tell me graduation is important and they're looking forward to sitting in classes here to finish up. "It means we got through academically. We helped give them an identity as students as well as athletes." A 156
