North Central College - Naperville, IL
Coaching minor, Exercise Science major

Paul, a transfer student, has packed a ton of memorable experiences into his two years at North Central College. Between his classes, internships and volunteer work, which included a trip to the Super Bowl, he’s seen and done a lot to prepare himself for a career in sports.

“There are many opportunities for students in my field here at North Central,” Paul says. “That’s made me confident in my knowledge and ability to compete against other students who’ll be aiming for the same jobs and positions as me in the coming years.”

Paul, who is pursuing a minor in coaching, worked at the Division III National Indoor Championship, served as a volunteer strength and conditioning staff member at Northern Illinois University and is president of North Central’s Sport Management Association. In that capacity, he organized a trip with 15 other students to work with the New Orleans Super Bowl XLVII host committee.

“It was an unbelievable experience,” he says.
