What is your favorite study spot on campus?

My favorite study spot on campus is NCB.  

What study skill or academic success tip/trick has helped you the most?

My favorite little study trick is having a coffee or drink to sip on nearby. It keeps me awake & engaged with what I’m doing.

What does being a student-athlete mean to you?

To me, being a student athlete means choosing to prioritize both your academics and athletics. Finding time for both is never ever easy, but it is always so rewarding in the end. 

"Sarah is a great student and always works hard to succeed in the classroom. She advocates for herself when needed by requesting/meeting tutors and meeting with professors. She is always well prepared and organized, which contributes to her success."
