"I chose BSC because I could both continue playing the sport that I love while also getting a great education pursuing my career in Physical Therapy. I love that the Division III program at Southern allows me to play competitive volleyball, but also lets me be involved in other ways on campus. I love the team, and have made some great friends since I've been at BSC!"
