Student Spotlight

Caroline DebnamCaroline Debnam

Caroline Debnam, a senior from Greensboro, NC is majoring in Sport Management with a minor in Sport Outreach. She is currently working her third season as team manager with the men’s lacrosse team, which has provided her the opportunity to receive a wide variety of experiences in the sport industry. When she is not busy with school and working with the lacrosse team, she enjoys working out and practicing her culinary skills. We asked her to answer a few questions to tell us a little more about her time here at Liberty.

What do you find unique about the academic program within the Sport Management Department? The professors have been the most beneficial aspect of the program for me. They invest in the students whole-heartily and make sure we are getting the proper education and experiences, so we will be equipped when entering the industry post-graduation.

Highlight about your time at Liberty? Working with the lacrosse team, as well as owning my own cookie company for a year. This was an amazing growing experience because it helped me get to know people all around campus.

Favorite class and why? Sport Marketing has been my favorite upper-level class so far. It is full of material and knowledge that I think will be applicable in the workplace. I also found the Practicum class beneficial because it sets up students for the rest of their time in the program. It provides them the opportunity to meet with career counselors, to make cover letters and resumes, and to gather experience in the field.

Future plans? I have accepted a position as a Membership Consultant with Onelife Fitness in the DC area.

Best piece of advice you have for prospective students? Get as much experience in college as you can. It will set you apart when you are applying for jobs after graduation and help you discover the career you want to pursue. Lastly, go on as many SMGT 497 trips as you can. They provide insight into the industry and help to better your relationships with your professors and classmates.
