“On my visit to campus I learned about the program and it was what made me finally decide to attend UNK. The reason it appealed to me specifically was my passion for athletics and the life lessons it teaches, and the relationships that are made through communication. When I found out that I could prepare myself for a career to work in athletics and improve my communication skills simultaneously, it was a very exciting thing for me.”
