For me, being a student-athlete at Bay Path is more than being a member of a team. It means I’m a valued part of a community of players that can influence what happens day-to-day on campus. Playing soccer in NCAA Division III is a very different experience than in high school. Academics are stressed just as much as athletics, and I play not so much for the glory, but for myself, my team, and my school. Developing a sense of community throughout the campus is also part of the mission of the student-run Student Athletic Advisory Committee. We participate in community service projects, such as the National Girls and Women in Sports Day, and we sponsor events about wellness and nutrition. I know I’ll always love playing sports, but with my student-athlete experience I’ve also learned how athletics has the power to influence and build community.
