Varsity Athletes

Earn respect on the field and off

Dalhousie's 250+ student-athletes have an excellent reputation for their performances on the court, field, arena and pool, as well as in the classroom. In the last decade, Dalhousie teams have brought home 64 conference championships. And over one-third of Dalhousie's student-athletes reach CIS Academic All-Canadian status, which requires a GPA of 3.43 or higher.

Student-athletes follow the rules too...

Student-athletes represent the university, the athletic department, and their team in a positive way and adhere to the Code of Student Conduct. They also follow the expectations and guidelines set out in the Varsity Athlete Handbook.
