Science student-athletes honored for academic achievement

OSU Student athletes including our own science student Brad Vomocil, sophomore in mathematics

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!
