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

My education in the classroom was equally supplemented by the life lessons learned as a student-athlete while proudly wearing the Block M as the captain of my team. The ability to overcome adversity, manage the stress and workload that’s demanded as an engineering student and master extreme time management challenges are but a few examples of leadership and personal growth development that have allowed me to achieve success as a working mother while leading a global industrial business to be best-in-class.

The opportunity this university provides its students is unlike any other. Being a part of the Michigan softball team has not only created lifelong friendships, but also skills I will use in my future as well. I've learned the meaning of being relentless in all aspects of life, the definition of hard work and what it takes to get what you want, all of which will help me succeed in the near future. Michigan has prepared me for all areas of life.

Attending the University of Michigan was the best decision I have ever made. The life lessons I learned during my four years at Michigan helped shape me into the person I am today and helped me achieve my goal of playing professional volleyball. I not only had an amazing experience as an athlete but was also pushed to be at my best in the classroom. Being an athlete at the University of Michigan truly embodies what it means to be a student-athlete. We have so much support from both our coaches and administrators but also from the community. We couldn't travel anywhere in the world without hearing a ‘Go Blue!’ in the airport. I am so thankful for the amazing opportunities Michigan gave me and for all the people that support Michigan athletics. Wherever you go, Go Blue!

Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Surgeon - Women's Track & Field

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.
