MIT Athletics Program Cracks Top 10 in National Rankings

MIT is known more for its high national rankings in the classroom, but in the most recent release of the the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Division III Director's Cup rankings, MIT moved up to the 9th position. In the past 3 years, MIT has steadily improved its ranking from 60 to 37 to 24, and all the way into the top 10 this month. The change reflects MIT's continued commitment to fielding competitive athletic programs. MIT's athletic director, Julie Soriero, said "When people think of MIT, they should think about achievement and excellence. That extends to academics, that extends to student activities, and that extends to athletics." Full releases from MIT and NACDA can be found at the links below.
