Track and Field

Why did you choose to attend Ohio Dominican University?
I transferred to Ohio Dominican from Coastal Carolina University to further my relationship with God, achieve accolades in track and field, and get on the correct path for my future in terms of learning and adapting to the real world. 

How do you stay involved at ODU?
So far, I am a member of ODU’s Track & Field program. I have gained more than I could ever have imagined from being a part of this team. I have developed leadership skills, communication skills and I am continuously pushing myself to be the best person I can be, day in and day out. I plan on joining more organizations in the future. 

What is one unique experience you’ve had at ODU that has helped you grow personally, professionally and/or spiritually?
My Philosophy and Theology classes have not only helped me grow mentally, but also spiritually. I have learned key components about life and the mind, and on top of it, I can use all of this information today and every day from here on out. 

Share an example or story of how you discovered your passion at ODU.
My coaches have helped me discover my ability to be faithful, humble and, most importantly, realistic, especially Coach Butch Reynolds. The real-life conversations I have with him are out of this world. I can learn from what he has gone through, the obstacles he has overcome, and listen to his wisdom, then apply it to my life and share it with others. 

Why are you proud to be an ODU student?
I am proud to be an ODU student because this school has so much to offer. The pride that is instilled in this university is mesmerizing. I am excited to see this campus grow as a whole and the accomplishments we can achieve in the years to come.
