I AM...a Current Student Athlete

Fanshawe has a strong tradition of competition in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). In addition to competitive success, there is also a tradition of academic success and Fanshawe student athletes excel in classroom. We purposely refer to you as “student athletes” because we believe that here you are students first and then athletes. 

To be a successful Falcon athlete, there are several things you need to know.

  • We expect you to take personal responsibility for your education.   
  • You are responsible for managing you absences from classes.
  • You are responsible for letting the Athletic Officers know if you are struggling academically.

That is not to say we will not help you or support you in this journey, but just as you take personal responsibility for your development as an athlete, the same attention should be played to your development as a student. 

The Athletic Officers will do their best to assist and support you. You can contact them at any time if you have a question about anything. They are well connected and can easily guide you in the right direction or make an appropriate referral.   

In addition to the support from the Athletic Officers, there are other offices on campus that can assist you in excelling academically.
