When Chris Crider decided to attend UNF’s Graduate School, it was due to his interest in the Athletic Administration program, which is a concentration of the Master of Education in Education Leadership.
His most pleasant surprise has been the credibility of the professors in UNF’s Graduate School. Crider said, “The professors I have had are very knowledgeable, not just in their subjects, but also on how to achieve your career goals in the sports industry.”
Crider does admit graduate school is demanding, but what he has learned will directly benefit his career and future endeavors. Crider’s advice for future graduate students have is to start off with just a couple courses to get a feel for it. “There are more papers and more expectations period.” says Crider, “Also, make sure you are intrinsically motivated. YOU have to want it!”
Currently, Chris is the Alumni President for the North Florida Chapter of Delta Upsilon.
On A Personal Note:
Describe one of your favorite locations off campus?
The beach. I know it just got cold, but I can’t wait for spring and summer time so I can ride my bike on the beach!
Where’s the best place on campus to unwind?
Although the student union is nice, I like the green.
