“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 prepared me for a world-class career and for the opportunity to compete in three Olympic Games -- that changed my life! My time at Michigan sharpened me to be able to compete with the very best in the world!
