National Student-Athlete Day

National Student-Athlete Day

Happy National Student-Athlete Day! Throughout the months of March and April the NCAA recognizes student-athletes at colleges and universities. There is a lot of devotion that goes into being both a student and an athlete so we want to applaud all the student-athletes throughout New Jersey for not only their athletic abilities but also their commitment to school. 

We want to acknowledge the colleges and universities throughout New Jersey who have produced excellent student-athletes. Some of these are Rutgers University, Princeton University, Seton Hall University, Montclair State University, Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and many more!

Congratulations to all the student-athletes throughout New Jersey!

The Beginning of March Madness

March Madness has been a long-standing tradition since 1939 where 68 men’s Division 1 college basketball teams compete against one another in order to become the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) champion. This tournament was established at Ohio State University by Coach Herald Olsen and since the creation it has been one of the most popular sporting events besides the Super Bowl.
