Major: Finance and Sport Management
Hometown: Centerville, OH
Involvement on campus: Sport Law and Labor Society, Sport Business Association, Sports Analytics Team, Foundations, and 21st Century and Professional Leadership Certificates
How did you get involved with Foundations?
I read about the CLDC and its services in a newsletter that the university sent to me last summer. I knew that Foundations and the Leadership Certificates were something that I was interested in, so I decided to pursue both of those programs.
What have you learned from the program?
A lot of professional and personal development. We took personality tests and talked about our priorities and goals. Then we used that to figure out how we could better spend our time to reach those goals. We also did a some cultural awareness and team building activities.
Would you recommend this program to other freshmen and why?
Yes, definitely. I would recommend this program to freshmen who are looking to get involved and put a unique experience on their resume. Foundations is a great way to grow personally and professionally. The goal is to help students develop leadership and communications skills, and you’re able to take those skills into your career and personal life.
What are your career plans at the moment?
I think I’d like to work in baseball. I’m kind of interested in the financial side of the sport and my dream job right now would probably be to be a sports agent.
Do you have any advice for incoming Bobcats?
Seek out the things that you’re interested in. There are so many resources, clubs, and opportunities to get involved in things that interest you and that you think you could see yourself doing in the future.
What is your favorite thing about being a Bobcat?
I’ve got a lot of favorite things. I like the culture here and that most people have a really good sense of pride in OU. The campus is great and I love the College of Business.
