One skill that comes with being a student athlete is that student athletes are able to multitask better than other students. Student athletes have to balance the time they spend at school, sports, and with family. With only twenty four hours in a day this can be very hard for them, but they are still able to make it through thanks to some of the many other skills they have acquired. One of which is time management, which plays a huge role in school life. For your primary post, select any one theory, conceptualization, or research study and briefly describe it.
Participation in college athletics is a fun and enriching experience for many students. In fact, thousands of student athletes participate in athletic games each year, and thousands receive scholarships to do so. However, the life of an athlete in college is not as great as it seems. With a the massive amounts of time put into your sport, its often impossible to perform adequately as a student. I believe that student-athletes should be given extra time to do their homework.
Throughout my life I have had to overcome different challenges. I have persevered through these challenges in my home life, extra curricular activities, and in school to be a successful student athlete. I have participated in many experiences that have changed me into a better person. My extracurriculars activities, sports, and music have made me into a well rounded person, and would be a great fit at UW-La Crosse. When I was a child my parents divorced, soon after, my mother remarried.
My sport is Track and Field and I am a hurdler. These professors believe that I am the stereotypical athlete. I believe the Association of Student Athletes is very influential, because students sometimes accept guidance and advice from their peers a little easier than from a higher ranking person who may not be able to relate to them on some of the new struggles among athletes.
