Caleb Janowski (Youth Program Director - Youth Sports, YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties)
"The program provided me with the tools to approach any job with confidence. I was attracted to Seattle University by the connection to the athletic department in the graduate assistant role, and the additional course work in leadership. As far as I am concerned, without my master's degree from Seattle University, I would not be where I am."
Livia Mahaffie (Assistant Cross Country/Track & Field Coach, Loyola University New Orleans)
"the program provided a solid foundation and the opportunity to network and cultivate professional relationships."
Kelsey Bumgarner (Assistant Director of Donor Relations, Whitworth University)
"The program at opened my eyes to the fullness that is the world of sports, including legal issues, ethics, business, marketing, economics, development, and more. It showed me what opportunities were available all the way from recreational to professional sports, provided a wide range of options when it came to practical experience, and gave me a wide network of athletics professionals to stay in touch with throughout my career."
Alli Young (Director of Operations, Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC))
"The program allowed me to work within a small cohort of graduate students. I was able to work closely with my advisors and professors, and through their existing connections in the Seattle area I landed an internship during grad school through which I was ultimately hired as an employee."
