Sarah Shropshire is a junior communications major with a minor in coaching from Wilmington, N.C. Shropshire is an undergraduate hall director, captain of the women’s volleyball team and an Averett Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) representative.

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

“I think Averett will help me with my degree based on the connections Averett can provide me whether that’s through the communications program, alumni or through the athletics program.”

What do you like best about the University?

“I like the close community and culture. Based off the size, it’s easy to build one-on-one relationships with professors, peers and coaches. I feel attending a smaller university has helped me develop more because of the opportunities that a small campus provides.”

Why did you choose your path of study?

“I chose my path because I wasn’t sure at first what I wanted to do and was interested in a few aspects of communications, so I decided to give it a try. I love communicating and working with others so I wanted to grow in certain areas in my field so I could make a career out of that. I love volleyball, and plan to get my MBA being a graduate assistant at the collegiate level after graduation.”
