2009 Ice Cream Social

What better way to celebrate the academic accomplishments of DePaul student-athletes…I scream, you scream, they all scream for ICE CREAM!

On Thurs., October 15, the Athletics Academic Advising (AAA) staff along with the Director of Athletics, Jean Lenti Ponsetto, celebrated the outstanding academic accomplishments of the DePaul student-athletes.

The DePaul staff, faculty and coaches were in attendance as Jean Lenti Ponsetto, honored various student-athletes for their hard work in the classroom. Jean challenged the student-athletes to continue to excel in the classroom and the importance of striving for academic excellence.

The event was as sweet as it could be with the main course consisting of ice cream plus all the fixings. All in attendance were treated to an ice cream sundae buffet, which consisted of three flavors of ice cream, crushed Oreos, nuts, fudge, whipped cream, and multi-colored sprinkles!

Many of the student-athletes’ professors were in attendance who were recognized for their leadership and support of the student-athletes.
