A Degree of Difficulty

May 9, 2011

Craig Sheedy graduated from the UA at the top of his game.

An Honors College senior with a double-major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics and Physiology.

A diver with Arizona’s 2008 National Champion Swimming and Diving Team. Winner of the prestigious Merril P. Freeman award (one of the top six awards for UA undergraduates.)

One of two student athletes in the nation to receive the NCAA Walter Byers Postgraduate Scholarship, for outstanding academics and superior citizenship.

Add to that the fact that Craig has spent three years conducting research and volunteers at a local hospital. Craig is outstanding, no doubt, but also is an example of the outstanding opportunities that bright, motivated students find at The University of Arizona.
