Paul Cipriano

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.

Mallory Bahr

Mallory says she added a coaching minor to her studies, “so I could learn the skills for teaching and sharing my passion for lacrosse and other sports.” 

Her courses in team and individual coaching, sport management, health and fitness and classroom teaching opportunities are preparing her to do just that. Mallory’s dream is to be a women’s high school or college lacrosse coach. A summer job as a lacrosse coach, which one of her professors referred to her, is one more step in that direction.

“North Central’s professors are great coaches and teach you the skills you need to be an outstanding coach yourself. I’m learning from some of the best coaches in the country.”

Though Mallory’s career focus may be in other areas, she admits “I will always want to be coaching and playing lacrosse and helping others learn how to play.”
