What is it like to be a student-athlete at NC State? How are their daily lives on campus different from those of other students?
A couple of Wolfpack student-athletes will be answering those questions this week as part of the Student All-Star Series at D.H. Hill Library. Asa Watson, a tight end on the football team, and Brittany Strachan, a forward on the women’s basketball team, will discuss the rewards and challenges of being a student-athlete at NC State.
It is a subject that is touched on in the spring issue of NC State magazine in an article on the university’s Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes. The article notes that NC State’s program is the first in the ACC to be certified by the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics.
Watson and Strachan are scheduled to speak at 4 p.m. Thursday in the Assembly Room, 2nd Floor, East Wing of D.H. Hill Library. The event is free and open to the public.
