"I chose Northwood University to continue my volleyball and academic career because I have always aspired to play in the GLIAC and in a division II program, as well as gain a strong business education. Throughout my visit, the coaches made me feel like a part of the team and so did the other players allowing me to really envision myself as a part of the program. The moment I stepped on campus I felt at home. I have always been interested in a business degree and with Northwood being such a successful business school it made my decision that much easier."
