The classes were purposefully designed to maximize learning, she said.
“The classes are small, everyone is there to learn and there are no time-wasters,” Nicholas said. “The professors challenge your thinking in addition to teaching you — and so the overall vibe is great. Everyone participates, which makes learning more fulfilling.”
Her successes excel well beyond the classroom — and into our new soccer and lacrosse stadium.
As a four-time member of the MAAC All-Academic Team, she has been recognized throughout her Quinnipiac women’s soccer career for her strong academics along with earning a starting position on the team.
“Over the summer, I completed an internship with the Washington Spirit, a women’s professional soccer team in Maryland,” she said. “They play at the top level in the United States and have had several national team players on their roster.”
The experience inspired her to work harder at Quinnipiac.
“I am so grateful to the athletic training/sports medicine program for helping me get that opportunity,” she said. “Having played soccer my whole life and here at Quinnipiac, I have a great passion for the game.”
Her experiences at Quinnipiac and her internship have given her the opportunity to better understand what it takes to excel as a player as well as a trainer.
