The Gary and Barbara Rodkin Academic Success Center will serve to support the academic achievements of Rutgers' approximately 700 student-athletes. With academic support services ranging from individual tutoring to workshops and seminars, the Academic Success Center will nourish the minds of our Scarlet Knights. This state-of-the-art facility will also be the new home for our men's and women's soccer and men's and women's lacrosse programs. The facility will include dedicated training and equipment spaces for each program, new lounges and meeting spaces, offices, and locker rooms that will not be shared with visiting teams.
Donor support is essential to helping student-athletes reach new heights and will make their continued success in the classroom and in competition on a national stage possible.
"The great state universities pride themselves on excellence, both in academics and athletics," Being a successful student-athlete is a difficult balancing act. These young men and women represent us. We feel a responsibility to help provide the resources necessary for them to achieve on the playing surface and in the classroom."
