The purpose of this study was to identify the learning and motivational academic strategies of Rowan University first-year student–athletes enrolled in Rowan 101 course by utilizing the Motivational Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ). Another goal was to examine if a correlation existed among trait sports anxiety and academic motivation and learning. The final goal was to provide student–athletes with classroom strategies.
