Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Sports Management Program

MarcAntony Arcila, Sports Administration Major

Name: MarcAntony Arcila
Major: Sports Administration
Hometown: Houston, TX
Fact: I was homeschooled from the 6th grade all the way through high school.

I chose to come in Belhaven because... I was scouted from a college showcase tournament in Houston, Texas and asked to try-out for their soccer team. Once I visited Belhaven I realized that it was a perfect fit for me. One of the best perks about a smaller school is that you can personally know your professors rather than just being a number.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... was with my admission counselor, since he was one of the first people I talked to when I heard about Belhaven. Jake  helped me so many times that I have lost count. Whenever I have had a problem or needed a questioned answered, even if it wasn't in his “area of expertise,” he gave me the advice I needed.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I hope I can leave the school with contacts from the conferences the Sports Administration Program has hosted that will help me become a soccer coach in the near future.

One word that describes my experience at Belhaven: Inspiring
