Major: Marketing and Sport Management

Collegiate athletes are asked a lot of themselves from their coaches, to their professors, to their teammates, and most importantly, themselves. These student athletes are often the most competitive men and women on a college campus. Their drive sets them apart from the others, and these students never say no. However, this drive is something that can often lead student athletes to poor mental health practices. The mental health of college student athletes is extremely important to the overall wellbeing of student athletes across the country.
