• Study hall is a tool and a privilege given to student-athletes intended to create an environment conducive to advancing education. Every individual learns by a variety of methods, and study hall should be a place where all of those methods can be practiced. Individual work can be done at either the computers or private desks, while group efforts can be focused in parts of the Humphreys Center or in a study room such as W261.
• These efforts are enforced by study hall proctors that should not only monitor the progress of the student-athletes with required study hall hours, but also prevent distractions and socialization by those just utilizing Humphreys Center resources. Resources include computers, free printing (copying and scanning if necessary), calculators, books, and study materials.
• As a method of accountability, study hall provides a cornerstone for the communication between coaches and academic staff members. Coaches receive weekly updates on their team’s logged hours and given feedback (both positive and if necessary, negative) on their student-athlete’s academic progression.
