Beloved academic advisor leaving Hoosiers

Marni Meunier, who oversaw Indiana's academic success during the Tom Crean era, announced Wednesday that she is leaving the program in order to move with her husband to Mexico, Indiana.

"I owe so much to so many but most of all I want to thank my students," Meunier wrote on her Instagram account. "There are no words that would encapsulate how much you have meant to me. Thanks for the buckets! I'm off to hunt for jobs. Go IU!"

Victor Oladipo, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, once said Meunier was "not only my academic advisor, she's been my everything, my best friend." Many players, such as Troy Williams and Jordan Hulls, also offered glowing testimonials about how Meunier helped them stay on track with classwork.

The Hoosiers faced the loss of two scholarships when Crean got to Bloomington in 2008 due to an Academic Progress Rate of 866. The team later ran off five straight single-year perfect APR scores of 1,000 under Crean, who often credited Meunier for her diligent efforts.
