Success on the court isn’t the only goal for the Crusader men’s basketball program, as Valpo puts a strong emphasis on being champions in the classroom as well.  The Valpo men’s basketball team takes its academic success seriously, putting in a number of hours outside the classroom with tutors and in study tables.  The extra effort has paid off, as a trio of Valpo players were named to the Horizon League Academic Honor Roll last year.  In addition, the Crusaders have had three Academic All-League honorees since the move to the Horizon League.

One-on-one mentoring from faculty and small class sizes are among the many strengths of a Valpo education. The University offers professional education with Colleges of Engineering, Business and Nursing, with a foundation in the liberal arts. More than 90 percent of annual graduates find employment or enter graduate school within six months of earning their degrees – further proving the quality of learning found at Valparaiso University.
