Grinnell College Athletics issued the following announcement on April 2.
Grinnell College and many others are celebrating NCAA Division III Week, which runs April 2 through 8.
Division III Week is a positive opportunity for all individuals associated with Division III to observe and celebrate the impact of athletics and of student-athletes on the campus and surrounding community. During the week, every Division III school and conference office is encouraged to conduct a type of outreach activity that falls into one of three categories: academic accomplishment; athletic experience; or leadership/community service/campus involvement.
The true essence of Division III athletics is the full integration of our student-athletes into the campus culture. Therefore, in addition to primary participation and organization by the athletics administration and student-athletes, Division III Week could involve the president, faculty, student body, admissions, student affairs or alumni.
Grinnell's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has helped established several events to celebrate the week. Those include:
Baked goods and PE activity class info handouts
Life after Grinnell Panel discussion (Night)
Community Meal - Men's Tennis
Lunch with Middle School Students - Being a student-athlete
