5 Rockford College Athletics The true measure of a champion Rockford College Athletics The true measure of a champion. At Rockford College, it’s not gauged in points scored. Our student-athletes prove themselves in the classroom first, where it counts. They’re frequently named Academic All-Americans and are found on academic honor rolls at the conference, regional and national levels. Regent athletics provides a positive co-educational experience through athletic competition. Rockford College student-athletes not only enjoy athletic achievement, but they are also enriched academically and are provided with opportunities for personal development and leadership. We also believe that it’s important for our student-athletes to be involved, be it on campus, in the community or both. Our trophy case may reflect an impressive degree of success. But for our student-athletes, the degrees that truly matter are awarded on graduation day.
