My Widener Experience
why did you decide to major in sport management?
I was always interested in sports and particularly in learning more about becoming an athletic director. The sport management major also gave me all the core business classes I needed in case I did not want to work just in sports.
what clubs or organizations were you involved in that made a memorable impression?
I was a member of the women's volleyball team. Being an athlete at Widener was a great experience. It kept me focused and forced me to learn time management skills early on.

Participate in the different networking events and workshops provided by the business school. Widener's School of Business Administration really prepared me for getting a job and taught me the importance of networking and making connections.
