Roosevelt U. Will Restore Athletics

May 8, 2009

The university on Thursday announced a plan to create a minimum of 12 teams over the next five years, with the first squads competing in 2010. The university will not offer athletic scholarships. Students pushed for the return of athletics. While Roosevelt is best known for having nontraditional older students, in recent years it has been enrolling more full-time, traditional age undergraduates.
