Michigan Traditions

“Here at Michigan, Olympians coach me. Nobel Prize winners lecture me. I eat lunch with All-Americans. In the athletic training room, I sit next to Big Ten champions. I meet with prize-winning authors during their office hours. I take class notes next to American record-holders. I walk to class with members of national championship teams. I open doors once opened by Oscar-winning actors, former Presidents and astronauts ... it's all in the day of a Michigan student-athlete.” Shelley Johnson, Michigan Field Hockey Alumna

Michigan women's track was an amazing experience and helped me realize my dream of becoming an orthopaedic surgeon. The ability to compete and have five big ten championship rings makes for an interesting background and the connection with other athletes when they are hurt. When I see an athlete now with a torn acl or shoulder dislocation, they know I am also an athlete and I want them to get back out there and play. Athletes share a competitive spirit and this spirit that I developed and honed at Michigan has helped me stand out and do well. During sports fellowship, I was a fellow doctor for the Texans, Rockets, Astros, and the University of Houston. While treating these athletes, I had a similar background and we could communicate better. The University of Michigan is what gave me this ability and would not be where I am today if not for the Maize and Blue.

Being a student-athlete at Michigan was an unbelievable experience. There was nothing like representing the Block M and my teammates at Michigan. I was fortunate to use top-of-the-line facilities every day, and was able to build relationships with coaches and an entire support staff that made my time at Michigan amazing. I gained so many friends in my four years in Ann Arbor and loved my time as a member of the Maize and Blue.

To say I'm a part of the Michigan field hockey family means so much more than just the 23 girls I suit up with every day. It's the team around the team, who are all best in their fields and make sure that we play, train and learn to the best of our abilities day in and day out, and it's the alumnae family who surround us with love and camaraderie and keep us inspired to represent the block M in everything we do.

Michigan is everything. The support system that we have here is amazing. The Michigan tradition is unbelievable. It is so awesome to be able to go back to your alma mater and not just run into teammates, but run into all the people that have been behind you during your four years of college. And you know all those people are still behind you. From my coaches to the entire athletic department to other teams, Michigan is my family.
