Albany, N.Y. – Thirty-five student-athletes representing The College of Saint Rose cross country and track & field teams recently spent a Saturday afternoon cleaning up a local highway within the city of Albany. It marked the eighth straight year that the Golden Knights help rid a 1.7 mile section of Washington Avenue between Fuller and Lincoln Avenues of debris.
The event represents just one of numerous community service projects that Saint Rose student-athletes complete every year. It furthermore puts forth another example of how Saint Rose student-athletes embody a major prong of the College's mission statement to engage with the school's urban environment and thus help foster a sense of motivated and caring citizenship.
It also coincides with the NCAA Division II Life in the Balance platform that stresses growth opportunities through academic achievement, learning in high-level athletics competition and development of positive societal attitudes in service to the community.
