This is Michigan
“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.”

A part of the potential that Michigan encourages you to reach is your potential to become a leader. Being the ‘Leaders and Best’ is what Michigan sets its goal on and we can't reach that goal unless everyone is collectively a part of it. Whether you are recruited or not, your coaches bring you into the program because they see leadership potential in you. Being held to the Michigan standard through tradition, experiences and ‘the team’ helps you develop and grow into a leader and ultimately the best person that you can be.
Michigan field hockey has helped me become the person I am today. When I first arrived four years ago, I was quiet and unsure of what I was capable of and how I would do as a student-athlete. As I enter my fifth year at Michigan, I can safely say that I have become increasingly confident and have been pushed beyond expectations in order to develop into a true Michigan Woman both on and off the field.
Michigan has far exceeded the high expectations I had when I arrived on campus, proving to be much more than a school -- it's a place to call home. I have been provided with all the resources I need to succeed, including a superb staff of coaches, academic advisors and athletic trainers -- all of whom have been at my side every step of the way. My teammates have grown to become my best friends and a part of my family, and we strive for success together -- as one team.
When choosing where I wanted to go to school, I was worried that a school as big as Michigan would be difficult to get comfortable in, but as a student-athlete at Michigan, you gain your own community where you are always supported, challenged and bonded with other student-athletes looking to achieve the same goals as you. Michigan has become my second home.
