North Central College - Naperville, IL
Major: 
Sport Management

“If you have a passion for sports, I recommend majoring in sport management. There are so many opportunities to build your resume at a school of North Central’s size. You take a variety of classes and learn many ways to build a career in sports.”

For Lauren, two of those opportunities were internships. One of the internships helped define her career interest. It involved interviewing student-athletes and writing their stories for publication on the College’s athletics website and distribution to media. “I discovered I like writing in sports journalism and want to work in this field.”

Her second internship connected her with coaches and team administration. “I interned with North Central’s track and field coaches and learned how to set up a meet and was involved in the labor that goes into running a program.”

Lauren says, “Everybody at North Central wants to help you get better and secure internships where you’re challenged to practice what you’ve learned.”
