“The application process [is] extremely personal, so try to figure out what type of person you are — academically [and] athletically … [The process] is very fulfilling in that you get to discover yourself in these big two things that define you.”

“Being actively recruited meant that I had to think about what I wanted in a school, and I had to make sure that this school is somewhere I want to be without my sport … When you’re trying to find a place that fits, think about everything that you want and the experiences you want to have because that is something that can bring you a lot of joy.”

Brett Miller: University of Maryland Track and Field

“Something I learned is that if you put your mind to something, then you can make it possible if that’s something that you really want to do … I always wanted to be an athlete in college, and I just had to work very hard for it.”
