FGCU to Join Atlantic Sun

Category: Atlantic Sun Expansion & Realignment, Featured News

The Atlantic Sun Conference has announced the addition of Florida Gulf Coast University as its newest member beginning in 2007-08. A-Sun Commissioner Bill Bibb made the announcement at a press conference held today on the FGCU campus.

“The Atlantic Sun Conference is extremely pleased to announce the addition of the Florida Gulf Coast University,” said A-Sun Commissioner Bill Bibb. “We are excited about the natural rivalries; we are excited about the growth and community support that FGCU brings to the conference; and we are excited about adding a member which shares the commitment to both academics and athletics which has been a hallmark of the Atlantic Sun. The vision set forth by President Merwin and Athletics Director Carl McAloose presents an excellent plan for growth and success and we are proud that this will include being a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference.”

FGCU has wasted little time in establishing the University as one of the most ambitious and fastest growing institutions in the southeast. Opening its doors in 1997, FGCU has recorded explosive growth with its enrollment expected to be in excess of 8,000 students in the fall of 2006.
