In the month of April, hundreds of events around the nation will mark the 25th annual National Student-Athlete Day, including an activity sponsored by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
Sodexo will honor all UW Oshkosh student-athletes with a voucher for a free lunch at Alumni Stadium on April 11 for the Titans’ baseball game against UW-Stevens Point. The first pitch of the doubleheader will be at 1 p.m. UW Oshkosh faculty and staff are also invited to celebrate Titan student-athletes.
On the menu will be traditional tailgate food including burgers and brats.
The 25th celebration of National Student-Athlete Day pays tribute to high school and college student-athletes nationwide for achieving excellence in the classroom and on the field, while making significant contributions to their schools and communities. National Student-Athlete Day is celebrated annually and has seen 3,180,498 million student-athletes honored, nationwide, since 1997. It has become one of America’s strongest endeavors promoting the positive virtues of sport and student-athletes as a whole, and the positive affect they both have on society.
The day, established by the National Consortium for Academics & Sports, is co-sponsored by the NCAA and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and Northeastern University’s Sport in Society. The event coincides with Division III week, which is April 9-15.
