I love how U-M’s School of Kinesiology is a small school on a big campus. Since Sport Management is a smaller program, I know most of my peers and we're in many of the same classes. It's nice walking into a lecture hall of 500 people, spotting your peers, and knowing you aren’t alone.

I don’t think I would have been at the NBA or have my dream job at the NFL if it weren’t for all the opportunities that U-M has given me. I think that comes from the different people that I’ve met, the different classes I’ve had, the school communities, the Sport Management program, and all those sorts of things that have really opened so many doors for me.
