The Eagles Nest

Study Hall, commonly referred to as The Eagles Nest, is here to help student-athletes reach their full potential in the classroom, as well as in athletics. It provides a study environment for group review or quiet individual studying. This is where Golden Eagles learn to soar! There is mandatory study hall for all freshmen during their entire first year. In order to make it out of mandatory study hall a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 is needed.

Tutorial Assistance

Marquette's Athletics Tutoring Program employs 50 tutors, comprised of professionals, teaching assistants, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Student-athletes can log into the GradesFirst system and schedule their own one-time appointment for any particular class they are enrolled in. Drop in hours with specific tutors are available on weeknights for core courses.

Academic Enrichment Coaching

In addition to tutorial assistance there is an Academic Enrichment Coach program. This program is designed to provide student-athletes with individual instruction on a weekly basis. Student-athletes meet with their assigned Academic Enrichment Coach weekly to plan, organize and prepare for their semester. The Academic Enrichment Coaches assist the student-athletes in becoming proactive learners and encourage them to reach all of their academic goals. This relationship provides the student-athletes with support and the opportunity to share their challenges and successes.

Progress Monitoring

Academic monitoring entails ensuring that the student-athletes are making progress towards a degree as specified by the NCAA and Big East conference, checking on class and study hall attendance, as well as closely monitoring their successful class participation. Our faculty reports grades three times per semester to staff members to help avoid potential problems early and correct them.

Learning Specialists

Learning specialties provide educational support to student-athletes who have a documented learning disability and/or ADHD. We collaborate with campus resources, professors and instructors to support the academic success of each student-athlete. All services that we provide are adapted to meet the individual needs of each student-athlete.
