“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 cheerleading has been the highlight of my collegiate experience. When I look back at everything I have done and accomplished over the last four years, I am most proud and nostalgic about being a part of Michigan Athletics. I have created a family away from home, one that works hard together, struggles together and celebrates great wins together. I have learned more about myself as a teammate, leader and friend than I will in any other organization. Cheerleading has provided me with incredible experiences, from cheering in the Big House to traveling around the country with our football and basketball teams. It has been an unforgettable journey and I am grateful to have been a part of something bigger than myself, the Michigan traditions and the Michigan family. Go Blue!

From wrestling, I learned that discipline, focus and hard work more than compensated for lack of talent. Michigan wrestling gave me the opportunities to compete, to develop self-confidence and to enable me to achieve the goals I set for myself, on the mat, in the classroom and throughout life. The time spent and lessons learned, about myself and life, as a student-athlete at Michigan have been priceless. I will forever be indebted to Michigan and U-M wrestling.

The University of Michigan gave me so many opportunities to meet people from around the world, from different cultures. That is the best word to describe what Michigan meant to me: opportunity. Students have opportunities in varying careers, meeting new people, being exposed to how other people think.
