Academic Support for the Lady Razorbacks
     There is no higher priority for the University of Arkansas Women's Athletics Department than the academic progress of its scholar-athletes. To achieve the goal of providing the absolute best in academic support, the department felt it was of extreme importance that female athletes have their own academic support personnel. Starting in 1989, the Lady Razorbacks had their own academic support staff, and in 1991 constructed a Women's Academic Center at Barnhill Arena.
     Two expansions in the Women's Academic Center followed in 1995 and 1997, but thanks to the generous gift of Bob and Marilyn Bogle, a joint academic center to assist both the Men's and Women's Athletic Departments opened in August 2001 as a part of the Reynolds Razorback Stadium renovations.
     The Bob and Marilyn Bogle Academic Center features 15,000 square feet of space including state-of-the-art computer labs and interactive teaching facilities. Along with formal and informal study areas, the Bogle Center includes private tutor rooms, student life and career development resources and a multipurpose classroom. It also continues the tradition of a dedicated space devoted to the needs of female athletes.
     Combined with the services of the Academic Support Program headed by Associate AD Melissa Harwood-Rom, the Academic Center gives Lady Razorback athletes a unique advantage in their scholarly endeavors.
