Eagles are 5th among FBS teams

Another year, another strong academic showing for Boston College’s student athletes.

Boston College athletics posted a 95 in the most recent release of the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate, good for 5th among FBS schools. The only schools ahead of BC were Notre Dame, Stanford, Northwestern, and Duke — the usual suspects.

Also impressive was the GSR for the football team, which clocked in at a 90, good for 9th best in the country.

According to BCEagles.com, Boston College has posted at least a 95 GSR across all sports every year since the GSR has been published, dating back to the 1998 matriculating class.

With some of the problems BC athletics is facing, it’s good to see that the Eagles still have their identity as a strong academic school in the top athletic conferences. Say what you will about the results on the field lately, but the strong academic tradition is a point of pride for the program and a big advantage in recruiting.

Congratulations to all of the BC teams for their strong showing! It’s definitely something to be proud of.
