Life as a Student Athlete
One of the biggest challenges Harrison says he’s experienced — and is common among student athletes — is balancing academics, athletics, and a social life.
“Some nights you come back late from practice and you’ll have assignments to do, and you just want to sleep,” he explains. “Being a student athlete is a lot; it’s not for everybody. But if you’re dedicated to it and you have a passion for sports, you’ll be able to get through it.”
He also has advice for younger and incoming Guilfordians, whether they’re athletes or not. “Try to meet as many people as you can in your four years at Guilford,” he says. “Throughout my time I have met many important people that I will continue to keep in contact with for advice to have success with my career.”
