I've always been a sports fan, but it was about 5 years ago when I fell in love with college sports. I decided to play tennis for Pepperdine University, and I had the 4 best years of my life. Unfortunately, even with all the matches I played, I clearly didn't learn how to chest bump. But I did learn valuable lessons about leadership, time management, conflict resolution, respect, and humility that I'll take with me for the rest of my life. On top of that, I still had a lot of fun and made lifelong friends. I wish I could go back and do it all over again!
Even though I had an amazing time in college, there are a lot of things I would have done differently if I could go back. I wish I had had access to some more (and more reliable) information when choosing what school to go to. I wish I had started going after internships earlier on. I wish I had been more productive during my summer breaks. I wish I had been more involved with other activities on campus. Unfortunately I can't go back in time, but there are a lot of people out there that are just about to start their own journey - which is really exciting! So, with AthletiCollege, I hope to help others make great decisions and have an even better college experience than the one I did!
