On Friday Nov. 13, students gathered around the atrium to witness 11 senior athletes sign their National Letter of Intent to a range of universities across the country. The National Letter of Intent is the university’s official, binding scholarship offer to a student-athlete. By signing the letter, he or she is committed to attend the institution for one academic school year.
The teams represented were: baseball, swimming, softball, lacrosse, and water polo. The signing ceremony was the first of three that will take place this year.
