Student-Athlete: Balancing academics and athletics

by

It’s DIII Week this week, where colleges across the country are celebrating Division III athletics. The Mount has 21 Division III athletic teams, and today we’re talking with sophomore Biology major and Women’s Tennis player Michelle Carnovale to talk about her Mount experience both on and off the court.

Knight Life: What attracted you to becoming an athlete at the Mount?

Michelle: When I was on the college search, I was unsure if I was going to continue playing college tennis. I knew being a Biology major was going to be difficult and that I was going to need to focus on being a student before being an athlete. I couldn’t imagine my life without playing tennis though because it had been such a huge part of my life since I was five years old. Thus, Division III athletics seemed liked the perfect balance between academics and athletics.

I was attracted to becoming an athlete at the Mount after talking to athletes and coaches at the college. They emphasized the word “student” when it came to being a “student-athlete.” I was also attracted to being an athlete at the Mount after staying overnight with a team member in which I got the opportunity to shadow a student for a day, watch a practice, and bond with the team. The team felt like a family, and the campus felt like a tight-knit community. After this visit, I knew MSMC was something that I had to be a part of. Continue Reading

Why Division III – Mount student athletes share their love of the game

by

Last week, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) celebrated Division III Week, highlighting and honoring student athletes across the country who participate in collegiate sports at the DIII level. In celebration, members of the MSMC Knights shared their thoughts about why they enjoy being part of a Division III team here at the Mount:

Diamond Umunna (Freshman, Women’s Cross Country)
“Being a DIII athlete is the best way to enjoy college. You have a social life, people on campus look up to you, you get to meet and participate with other non-athletes, and you still have the opportunity to play the sport you love at a high level. Moreover, you graduate with a good degree and you’re extra-ready for the real world – crazy schedules, commitment, competition. So if you’re thinking about what collegiate level to choose, don’t look past DIII just because it doesn’t have the same athletic hype and moreover the money. College is a full experience, and if you want that experience and still want to play sports, then DIII is right for you.” Continue Reading
