Athletic Hall of Fame

The inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame induction, on October 11th, was a great success as 19 individuals and one team were inducted and a new tradition began. The 2014 inductees represent the history, standards, culture and spirit of Snow College Athletics as they laid the ground work for many of the athletes and coaches who continue to push the boundaries and set the bar higher.

Full descriptions and pictures of the inductees is available on the Hall of Fame website as well as the criteria and form for nominations into the 2015 Hall of Fame. Visit to nominate a deserving athlete, coach or administrator today!

The Snow College Employee Giving Campaign will kick-off on November 10 and run through the 21. Several employee's donate through payroll deduction to scholarship programs and departmental funds. This year a special appeal is being made for employees to designate a portion of their donations to the Science Building Campaign and help us toward the $3 million goal.
