Faculty Member: Carrie Switzer, PhD, Associate Professor, Psychology
One of the primary reasons that I chose to be a faculty partner is because it is so inspiring. I am very impressed with the amount of time and hard work that it takes to be a volleyball player. The early morning weight training, grueling afternoon practices, travel time to away games, and extensive game schedule, are coupled with a strong commitment to high academic standards. Coach Noelle Rooke and Assistant Coaches Stephanie Sagat and Ashley King are building a program that is based not only on continual skill improvement, but team unity and personal pride that are the foundation for a successful life after college. Another reason that I enjoy being a faculty partner is that the coaches and players are just plain fun to be around because they sincerely like each other and are having a great time playing a sport they all love.
