What is your favorite memory from freshman year?
When I took the initiative to get involved on campus with different organizations I developed new relationships and learned new and exciting things, therefore my favorite memory from freshman year was joining a sorority and meeting a lot of interesting people associated with Greek Life.

What is the most important thing that you learned about sport management and the sports industry?
There is a world of opportunities available to students in Drexel’s SMT program. The faculty members are eager to help us get new experience and reach our career goals. With a career-focused university like Drexel, there are so many chances to get involved through volunteering and observing a variety of sports jobs.

What advice would you give to the freshman based on your experience?
I would recommend that freshman take advantage of academic opportunities available to them. Taking on a minor in a meaningful subject can broaden your learning experience and set you apart from other co-op and potential employee candidates.

If you could do it all over again, what would you do different?
I would have worked harder to develop and maintain strong relationships with sports professionals I came across. Networking is essential to be successful in this field. I should have taken advantage of important people I met throughout freshman year during classroom and volunteer experiences. Those are the people that can eventually assist in acquiring a great co-op and eventual job opportunity.
