Academics  were  the  most  important  thing  for  me.  I  loved  that  the   College  of  Commerce  was  more  about  real  life  situations  instead   of  just  theory.  But  what  stood  out  for  me  in  the  world  of  athletics   was  the  sense  of  family  that  the  entire  Athletic  Department  had.   (YHU\RQHVHHPHGWRWUXO\FDUHDERXWHDFKRWKHUDQG,NQHZ,ZRXOG have  the  best  possible  support  system.
