Not many people know the onus of being a student athlete in college This burden set on them has caused the graduation rate of scholarship players to average at about fifty percent from 1995 to 1998 In order to be eligible to play the athletes must be full-time students which means taking at least twelve units a semester Because these athletes are taking so many classes they must make time for a considerable amount of studying and homework Then add up the amount of practice their sport requires and I doubt they will find a second to rest Student athletes are the hardest working students in collegeMost student athletes have a demanding and rigorous schedule This is partly because of the required twelve units minimum a semester to qualify as a full-time student Without the full-time student status they would be ineligible to play sports That means at least three hours a day of courses on average My schedule is similar to this in that I am taking fourteen units this semester It averages out to about three and a half hours of class a day Scheduling the class times can also be a burden It took my friend Chris Carter who plays baseball for Chapman University two weeks to plan his class schedule around his job and his training An athlete cannot have class on Fridays because some games occur on Fridays Therefore it makes it even harder to plan My physical therapist Jim Hairston is a teacher at Chapman University and he said that many of his students who play sports have a harder time staying awake because of lack of sleep These could all attribute to the recent fall in the graduation rateAnother conundrum student athletes must face is finding time for studying and homework With classes half the day and training the other half that leaves the night for studying Most
