Here is part two of our College Admissions 101 series - Advice for the Student Athlete, held at Darien Library on Thursday, April 22nd at 7pm. Our panel of speakers, which combined coaches, parents of student athletes, and the student athletes themselves, offered great tips for navigating the process of choosing the right school and athletic program, getting recruited, and managing both the acacdemic and extra-curricular responsibilities of an athlete. Take a look at the video below, where you'll also find out why our panelists all agree that being a college athlete, whether in a division or through club teams, is an incredibly fulfilling experience!
