Favorite aspect of your school: The athletics community, specifically our athletic trainers and our strength coaches. When you walk into the weight room or training room, you get welcomed and supported through anything you may be going through. They always ask how games and practices are going, but also ask about academics and other life goals. My ATs and strength coaches try to find the human in every athlete and that forms a deeper connection and fun conversations.
