Student Spotlight

Blake Molina, recent graduate from the undergrad program and current graduate student
Why did you choose Wichita State as an undergraduate student?
I chose WSU because I knew my senior year of high school that I wanted a career in sports. I looked up the kinds of jobs in sports, which confirmed that I wanted to work in the sport setting. Then, I looked up colleges that offered Sport Management/Administration/etc. Being from Wichita, it didn't take long to find out that Wichita State University not only had a program, but had a prestigious one. I actually attended Hutchinson Community College first, because I attended there at a cheap cost, and the Sport Management program was built to transfer to WSU. I worked in the Sports Information Department while at HCC, because I knew early on in my education that getting experience was important.

Why did you continue to graduate school, particularly at WSU?
Besides the convenience of not having to move, I liked the curriculum structure of the program. I know what I'm getting with the faculty here, and I definitely wanted to learn more from them. You're able to graduate in two  years, and it allows an opportunity to get more experience via internship before graduating. The department is so well-connected with alumni that even though we're in Wichita, students are able to get placed anywhere in the country for their internships.
