A Message From President Lyons The University of San Diego is very proud of the student-athletes that represent our institution on 16 men' s and women' s NCAA Division-I athletic teams. These are proud and serious competitors, honored to represent the University. The dedication you witness on the playing fields, on the court, on the course, or in the water is greatly matched in the classrooms, the laboratories, on stage, or in the community. Last year forty percent of our student-athletes carried a grade– point average above 3.2, and nine of our teams had a cumulative grade-point average above 3.0. Athletics is vital to the University of San Diego, a way students , faculty, staff and alumni come together as one community. I am both a university president and a Torero fan ; I look forward to sharing the excitement of Torero athletics with our many fans.
