Classroom

Megan Rogowski is an academic leader and role model not only for her teammates, but also for her fellow students on campus. She has a 3.53 grade-point average and is majoring in business. Rogowski led the Blue Demons to the eighth-best team GPA in the country among NCAA Division I women’s basketball programs last season. She also led DePaul to the Academic National Championship among schools in the 64-team NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament field. She earned DePaul’s Cookie Gavin Courage and Shirley Becker Academic Awards as a freshman and is a three-time BIG EAST All-Academic Team selection. She also was the recipient of the Shirley Becker Acadmeic Award as a sophomore.

Character

Rogowski is a terrific role model for underclassmen at DePaul and lives every day of her life trying to follow the Vincentian values she has learned at the university. She goes out of her way to help the less fortunate and lives her life in a way that would make St. Vincent de Paul proud. Because of her humility, one would never know that she broke the all-time Hersey High School scoring record set by ex-DePaul star and NBA veteran Dave Corzine, who played eight seasons with Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls.

Community

True to her Vincentian nature, Rogowski has immersed herself in community-service activities and projects. Some of those have included volunteering with Misericordia, St. Vincent DePaul Student Service Days, Feed the Homeless, Bring the Blue Blanket Drive and Autograph with Kids. She has appeared at the Chicagoland media luncheon, the Fox Sports kickoff, Nike Town youth girls event and also volunteered at the Sheffield Garden Walk. Rogowski also coordinated the women’s basketball toy drive for children 2 to 5 years old at the St. Vincent de Paul Center and Marillac House day care centers.

Competition

Rogowski entered her senior season with a .386 (204-of-529) 3-point field goal percentage, which ranks seventh among active Division I players. She set the DePaul single-season record for 3-pointers as a junior with 114 and needs 100 3-pointers to break the all-time school record. She was an All-BIG EAST Honorable Mention performer as a junior and was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll four times. Megan led the BIG EAST Conference and ranked fourth in Division I with 3.26 3-pointers per game as a junior. She set a new McGrath-Phillips Arena record with eight 3-pointers against Providence on Jan. 8, 2014 and tied a McGrath-Phillips Arena record for 3-point percentage by knocking down five of six triples against Butler on Feb. 22, 2014. She has drilled 90 career 3-pointers in 36 career starts.
