Athletics takes part in DIII Week

As part of the NCAA's Division III Identity Initiative in 2010, Division III Week was created to bring attention to the student-athletes competing in the largest division in the NCAA.  Schools like Heidelberg are charged with promoting the academic and athletic achievements of our students. 

Follow your passions and discover your potential

The college experience is a time of learning and growth – a chance to follow passions and develop potential. For student-athletes in Division III, this happens most importantly in the classroom and through earning an academic degree.

The Division III experience provides for passionate participation in a competitive athletics environment, where student-athletes push themselves to excellence and build upon their academic success with new challenges and life skills. And student-athletes are encouraged to pursue the full spectrum of opportunities available during their time in college.

In this way, Division III provides an integrated environment for student-athletes to take responsibility for their own paths, follow their passions and their potential through a comprehensive educational experience.  (taken from the NCAA Division III strategic platform)
