Creating Connections  Convention

The term ‘student-athlete’ intentionally lists ‘student’ before ‘athlete. Different levels of competition drawing a thinner line between the two that others, but the main priority is to find the right fit and get a quality education. Many student-athletes, and students in general struggle with the concept of determine a major, or ‘what do I want to be when I grow up’. If you are a student-athlete with goals of playing in college, a big part of that process is researching schools that have areas of study/ degree offers you are interested in….but do they always know what degree pathway will lead to the career you are interested in? This is where we come in!
