Frostburg State Announced Plans For Division III Week

The Frostburg State University athletic department will help celebrate NCAA Division III Week with a host of activities that honor and celebrate the university's student-athletes. Division III Week is scheduled for April 9-15 and will run in conjunction with National Student-Athlete Day on April 6.

FSU will kickoff the festivities with a student-athlete BBQ at Bob Wells Field (baseball field) from 2:30 – 5:00 pm on Friday, April 6.

"Division III Week is a great opportunity for the university to celebrate the ideals and meaning on which the term student-athletes is built. It provides us a platform to highlight the contributions that student-athletes make both in the classroom and on the field or court,” said Director of Athletics Troy A. Dell. “Our Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has done an excellent job of planning this week and I am sure that they will do a great job of hosting and coordinating the events of the week.”

The athletic department has dedicated a webpage, twitter account and facebook page that will help celebrate Division III Week. The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will update both twitter and facebook with photos, videos and interviews throughout the week.
