Junior Anthony Sobolevsky is majoring in communications with a minor in biology. He is a member of the men’s soccer team and a presidential scholar. “Mondays are super busy, which is a test to time management. We pretty much train all year round, so each night I plan for the next day. I set a lot of reminders so I know when to be where. Everything is back-to-back-to-back, but thankfully with Zoom, I can do more remotely from my apartment.”

Senior Abi Feeney is majoring in art with a minor in education. She is a member of the women’s basketball team. “Class always comes first with our team and Coach P [Taylor Possail, women’s basketball head coach]. I try to take advantage of any open hours in my schedule to go into the studio to work on my art projects as well as observing for education. I like to get extra training in during the morning before my classes. The balance is making sure I put in equal amount of effort for both classes and basketball.” –CP
