One of the highlights of my life was playing soccer for Vanderbilt and representing the university as a student-athlete. You don’t realize how special those times were and how much those relationships through sports impacted your life until you are years removed from the university. Reconnecting with alumni from all of the sports programs and finding ways to mentor and help existing student-athletes drove me to become part of the Black and Gold Club.
The Black and Gold Club can be the opportunity to get alumni involved with the current sports programs to help broaden the appeal of Vanderbilt athletics. Through a strong alumni program that not only supports the games but makes sure athletes have opportunities and ideas for life after school, Vanderbilt athletics will grow in popularity and thrive for years to come.
