HAMDEN, Conn. - The Quinnipiac University men's basketball team visited Fair Haven School in New Haven Thursday to talk to the kids about the importance of academics. Members of the team met with approximately 25 students, whose classrooms are named after colleges. The purpose of the trip was to show the kids that the collegiate student-athletes need to be strong academically before they can thrive athletically.
The Quinnipiac student-athletes discussed with the Fair Haven students what it takes to be successful in the college classroom. The Bobcats also helped the students realize that they need a strong academic background in the event that athletics don't work out. Finally, the Bobcats greeted the students as they got on the bus to head home for the day.
