Coach's advice: keep your eye on the goal...

"I would tell first year students that they need to learn how to balance their free time efficiently. They need to stay focused on their responsibilities and goals, and be able to balance those with other types of fun they will have. I would say 'trust their professors and work hard...they are the ones who will help mold you into a professional."

 

When shooting for success, have a great team behind you....

"Without a doubt, my English, Social Studies, and Education professors gave me what I needed to be a good teacher. A strong content, coupled with teaching methods, enable me to be successful right out of college." 

 

Get in good practice sessions...

"While at Marywood, the faculty in my Education courses gave me the tools that I needed to be effective in a classroom. Through realistic simulations, I was able to develop my performance in front of people on a regular basis."

 

Win-of-a-lifetime isn't always on the court...

 "This summer I will marry the Marywood alum I met while attending the University."
