The athletic department received the U.S. Olympic Achievement Award last June at the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors Convention. The United States Olympic Committee recognizes students for their medal-winning performances and coaches who are members of medal-winning Olympic or Paralympic delegations. The university earned the award based on the gold-medal-winning performance of swimmer Lauren Perdue at the 2012 London Olympics.
