“Student-athlete” may be a foreign term for many of today’s high profile athletes who just happen to attend college.  After spending last semester abroad in Central America, Calvin sophomore and member of the basketball team David Rietema, took the term back to its origins, proving that at Division III schools across the country, “student athlete” remains appropriate terminology.
