My participation in sports has made me a very competitive person. I like to win, and be a part of a winning team. This competitiveness has given me the confidence and the drive to fight for what I want, and push myself to do my best in everything that I do.
Our coaches and professors make it very clear that we are all students before athletes, and grades come first. That means that we all get the opportunity to do what we love, but we must focus on our academics and set ourselves up for success in the future.
One of the most appealing aspects of the university to me is its size. I know a lot of people in every class here at Susquehanna. Everyone on campus is very welcoming of each other, regardless of age. There is no disconnection between seniors and juniors, or juniors and sophomores. Besides, on a sports team you have the advantage of knowing older teammates who mentor you and are around to answer questions and show you the ropes.
Another aspect of the school that I really enjoy is the relationships that I have with my professors. They know my name because of the smaller class sizes, and this has given me many opportunities to become involved both on and off campus.
The opportunities are limitless at SU. Look at what I have been able to do in the short time I’ve been here. Among other things, I’ve taken on leadership positions for a number of service organizations, including People Serving People and Habitat for Humanity. I’m a member of both Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society and Phi Mu Delta Fraternity. I serve as mentor and coach to first-year students, and am on the Sigmund Weis School of Business Dean’s Student Advisory Board.
Through my involvement with sports and these activities, I’ve learned so many things about myself and what I hope to accomplish in the future. When I get to the workplace, I know my attitude will remain the same, and will aid me in being committed to both my work and my co-workers.
