A Balancing Act: How Athletes Balance their Time & Prepare for the Real World

In previous posts, I’ve detailed how students within the School of Communications are preparing for the real world.  Now what happens when some of these students are Quinnipiac athletes?

Seniors Aine McKeever and Mary Corrado both play on the women’s soccer team at Quinnipiac.  Being a Division I athlete comes with a very time consuming schedule because of practices, games, classes and homework.

McKeever and Corrado shared with me how they help balance everything and prepare for jobs and grad school with the help of professors in the school.
