After we read that a university in Canada was offering free tuition to students who could make a half-court shot we thought why not at GW? Instead of a formal proposal to the Athletic Department we took it straight to Athletic Director Patrick Nero via Twitter.
He let us know he would look into it and within 2 weeks he has made this suggestion into reality! This Saturday at 4pm, at the Men's Basketball game, a lucky student will be chosen from the crowd to take one half-court shot. Hear the swish, and the academic year is on GW! Maybe it could be you!
This represents a great example of how student engagement can produce great moments. Patrick Nero listened to a student idea, used his expertise to evaluate the feasibility and was able to put it into action in a short time frame. This is truly exemplary service to the student life aspect of GW that we, as students, are always looking to improve. Thank you, Patrick Nero for your dedication to making GW a better place! Raise High!
