Earlier this week, a record number of freshmen and sophomore student-athletes attended the first Career Development program of the semester, Razorback CSI (Career Search and Investigation). Thirty-eight student athletes from baseball, football, gymnastics, men’s basketball, men’s and women’s track and field and cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball each took part in the program.
The goal of Razorback CSI is to help student-athletes that are undecided on their choice of major by providing information on the degree options and possible future career paths offered by the various colleges on campus. Advisors from the College of Engineering, Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, Sam Walton College of Business, Fay Jones School of Architecture, J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences, and the Global Campus each participated in the event.
Student-athlete Career Development Coordinator Alison Nail hosted the event and was pleased with the turnout and response from the student-athletes. “It’s exciting to see students taking a proactive, genuine interest and investment into their future,” said Nail. “It’s also great to know that each of the colleges have staff that fully support the success of our student-athletes.”
