The AnBryce Forum: Scholarship Athletes: Challenges, Pressures and Expectations

-

Location: McKenna Hall

Steve Filer ’12, football; Eric Atkins ’14, men’s basketball; Jade Barber & Kaila Barber ’15, women’s track & field; Dr. Gabriel Torres Colon, Assistant Director and Senior Lecturer in American Studies, Vanderbilt University (moderator)

Scholarship athletes, who appear to be exalted "insiders,"  face many pressures at universities like Notre Dame, where they are expected to not only be skilled on "the field" but good students who are able to juggle their academic lives.  Recent alums from football, men's basketball and women's track will discuss the complex realities they navigated as athletes, including stereotypes, parity in the classroom, work/life balance and how they struggled to “do it all” and at what cost to their experience of campus life.  They will also touch upon the other social categories that weighed upon their experience, namely financial status and race.   Anthropologist Dr. Gabriel Torres Colon, from Vanderbilt University, will moderate this exciting panel. Reception to follow. Register
