The athletic programs at UNA are amazing. That's originally why I found UNA, and the trainers take such good care of us. They teach us far more than just athletics. They teach us how to be servants in our community. They teach us to succeed in our classes. They take care of everything we could possibly need as a student first, and then they take care of us as athletes.
Our athletes typically succeed in the classroom. Last semester, across the board, student athletes held a 3.0 grade point average, and then Women's Tennis actually held the highest GPA among athletes with a 3.7 as a team.
While I've been a student here at UNA, we've had Women's Softball win a title. They actually won the championship for D-II before we went D-I, as well as the fact that we've had Men's Baseball beat Ole Miss and a few other big wins that have really brought some great community support to the games as well, and it's also gotten other people interested which is really nice.
As I look back on my time playing sports at UNA, running cross country, I am really proud that I was able to run. If you're thinking about being an athlete at UNA, I would really evaluate your time management because they are going to help you learn to better manage your time. Here, you work as a team to accomplish everything, from going out and working at a community event that your coach set up for you as a team, to being on the field. But looking back and seeing that I've accomplished that makes me realize that I can do anything, which is really nice.
