    Athletic Hall of Fame
    It was with great pride that the Athletics Office and Alumni Association established an Athletic Hall of Fame in 1977 to honor men and women of Dean who have distinguished themselves in athletics.

    The Hall of Fame recognizes the accomplishments of these athletes not only while at Dean, but at four-year colleges and universities and, for many, at the professional level. They have brought honor not only to themselves and their families, but also to Dean College.

    Through the Athletic Hall of Fame program, Dean permanently acknowledges the outstanding achievements of those alumni whose athletic skill and keen sense of competition served as an inspiration for all who knew them and whose accomplishments will forever be recognized at Dean College.
