What impact do your gifts have on student-athletes?
The impact is endless. The gifts from alumni allow student-athletes the opportunity to take spring trips, get new equipment each year, and upgrade facilities. Our gifts allow kids the opportunity to pursue college athletics and give them a great experience at Springfield College.
When you were a student-athlete at Springfield College, in what ways did support from alumni, families, and friends impact your experience?
They all played a huge impact in my experience. Not only did we players form friendships and bonds on the field, but our parents also bonded together. We knew that no matter where we were traveling, we would have a large fan base supporting us. It made road games feel less like road games, especially when we were down south on our spring break trips. It also was cool to talk to former players who would come support us in Florida, and it was exciting to know that we had people following our games and our season from around the country.
