Sports and education are a large part of college life for many prospective students. Enrollees like to take part in recreational activities while engaging in a top-quality learning experience. Point University recently partnered with Elite Performer Sports Academy to launch its club football program to students for the fall of 2011.
The curriculum is designed for post-high school student-athletes to play football versus college-level competition and gain an extra year of playing experience, which could allow for more exposure to college recruiters. The program enables the school to sign more than 50 individuals to scholarships that help pay for their schooling.
The college recently changed its name from Atlanta Christian College to Point University to help capture the school's focus of faith as the point of life and students as the main influence in culture and the marketplace.
The U.S. Department of Labor projected that in the near future, 90 percent of new high-growth, high-wage jobs will require some postsecondary education.
