I love being a sport management major at Misericordia. From the hands-on, discussion-based classes, to the outstanding support from faculty, Misericordia's Sport Management program has given me the education and experience I need to combine my passion for sport with a career.
Being a sport management major, I have had the opportunity to work behind the scenes in multiple different sporting events on campus and even had the opportunity to go on incredible, once in a lifetime experiences.
