How do you believe Averett will help you with your degree?

“I believe Averett will help me get my degree in sports management by preparing me for life after college and directing me toward the right career path. The department is nice and the professors are there for you as well. Some of the coaches have their degree in sports management so they are there to help you along the way, especially when it comes to your classes.”

What do you like best about the University?

“The thing I like best about Averett is definitely the family environment, such as the ‘One Averett, One Team, One Family,’ environment. Another thing I like about Averett are the class sizes. You get to know your professors on a personal level, therefore they are there if you need them.”

Why did you choose your path of study?

“I chose to study sports management because I play sports and I always wanted to be around sports even if I’m not playing at the higher level. Sports have helped shaped me to be who I am today.”
