73 men's hockey players made the NESCAC All-Academic team, maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.35. What about in other conferences?

PS NESCAC has four of the top six and six of the top 18 schools on U.S. News and World Report's Liberal Arts College rankings. Cue backlash that those rankings don't matter!

In all fairness. a Liberal Arts degree is a starting place. I actually support the concept.

Also, there is a big difference between a "liberal arts degree" and a degree from a liberal arts college.

Although we are getting a looooong ways away from hockey, pure mathematics is one of the classical liberal arts. Thus, a mathematics degree is a liberal arts degree. The liberal arts are the arts and sciences - as opposed to vocational training :D

I think the ECAC All Academic teams are released the first week of April.

Interesting to see the spectrum of the number of student athletes at each college.
Babson(3) and St.A's(4) on the low end and Castleton(12) and UNE(12) on the high end.

It is a tough job comparing academic achievement between schools. Is an "A" at Norwich, equivalent to an "A" at St. Anselm. Nobody can really say. There are just too many variable involved.About the only comparison that can be made is the relative standing of hockey players to the rest of the student body. Babson grades can be compared to Babson grades, but probably not to Castleton grades.

My thoughts exactly. Earning a 3.0 @ Babson is a lot more difficult than many of the other schools in the ECAC-E.

The degree of difficult of earning a grade depends not always on the academic quality of the school as the grading philosophy of the faculty. Decoding the meaning of grades is not always easy.

I agree with the Professor, an 'A' means different things in different schools and, in fact, in different Academic Departments or Degree Programs. A more accurate measure of the academic effort and results of a Hockey team would be to compare each of the players record to others in their own degree program only.

Kudos to all! I don't care what they study - being a student athlete is tough. That being said... My all time favorite player since first day I watched him play as a freshman, Colin Mulvey, at least 3.7 in engineering. Rock on Colin!!!
