Do top collegiate athletes go to class?

I went to college at a Division 1 Hockey school. It should come as no surprise that we often speculated about whether the players actually took classes, particularly because they weren't in any of ours. Our suspicions were further raised by the fact that many of them were Québécois and, as far as we knew, the school didn't offer any classes taught in French.

While these kinds of concerns are probably prevalent at many major universities, I'm happy to report that we now have anecdotal evidence that it's not a problem at one of the Division 1 Chess schools.
