Academic and Athletic Achievement
Assumption is one of only 32 schools nationally to earn the Division II Presidents’ Award for Academic Excellence—driven by the approximately 300 students named to the NE-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll every season.
Athletics are Big at Assumption
With 25% of our students participating in at least one of our 24 NCAA programs, the importance of athletics at Assumption is clear. Athletes across all teams enjoy enthusiastic support from teachers, peers, administrators, and fellow athletes.
The Greyhounds compete at the highest level in the NE-10, and our athletes are regularly recognized for their talents. In 2017-18, seven student-athletes from four different sports were named All-American and our football team won its second NE-10 title in just three years—advancing to the NCAA National Quarterfinals!
A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY
The entire sports community at Assumption is like a family.
My teammates and I go to all the games—field hockey, football, tennis, soccer. We all root for each other and support each other.
Giving Their All—and Giving Back
Assumption’s student-athletes are committed to sharing their talents in service of those in need. Last year, they completed nearly 4,000 hours of community service—building homes through Habitat for Humanity, raising money for breast cancer research and veterans organizations, and brightening the lives of chronically ill children by drafting them to become part of Assumption teams through our partnership with Team IMPACT.
