In conjunction with the NCAA, USC athletics celebrated National Student-Athlete Day to acknowledge the student-athletes with cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or better. 

Of the 623 student-athletes, 255 (40.9%) meet or exceed the mark.  And, 86 student-athletes sport an exemplary 3.5 cumulative GPA or better.
