I am wondering about sports in college. Are most athletes’ good students or is it hard to play a sport and get good grades? - Melanie
I am glad you are trying to determine how it will impact your success in college. Any extracurricular activity in college will require learning time management. So whether you are an athlete, cheerleader, or majorette, it will require you to put yourself on a study plan to be successful. As an athlete you travel a good portion of the time and you still will be required to be turn in all assignments in all of your classes. Many schools provide tutors to the athletes so that they will have support. Athletes require persistence and commitment to maintain high grades.
