June 13, 2014
MILWAUKEE – Senior Kathryn Koeck of the Marquette University women’s track and field team was one of 200 student-athletes selected to participate in the NCAA Career in Sports Forum on June 5-8 in Indianapolis.
"I cannot express how wonderful the experience was,” Koeck said. “I was able to network with successful professionals in addition to meeting other hard-working athletes. The course work was insightful and made me really think about what I wanted in life and the sacrifices I would need to make to get there.”
Koeck and the other participants were chosen out of more than 1,100 applicants to take part in the forum, which allowed student-athletes to learn and explore potential careers in sports.
“The forum opened my eyes to the different styles and structures of universities, taught me how to better interact with different personalities from my own, and improved my professional interviewing skills to help me stand out more," Koeck said. "The time and resources that the NCAA put into us athletes are very much appreciated. They treated us so well and I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to be a part of the 2014 NCAA Career in Sports Forum."
In addition to networking with key NCAA and university decision makers, Koeck and the other participants gained a better understanding of the role of athletics administrators and developed actionable plans for personal growth and development.
Koeck is currently a student worker in Marquette's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.
