A major focus of the UNCW Life Skills program is preparing our student athletes for life after college and the end of their intercollegiate athletic careers. Student-Athlete Academic Support works closely with the University Career Services Center to provide workshops to educate student-athletes about the job search process, provide networking opportunities, and to assist with job placement. Student-athletes are encouraged to participate as early as in their freshmen year in self-exploration workshops about career choices and to help them in choosing a major. A major goal of the athletic department is to its help student-athletes develop into individuals who will have rewarding careers and productive lives after they leave the UNCW.
