‘Athlete for a Day’ Gives Taste of Student-Athlete Life

Students, faculty and staff at SUNY Cobleskill got a chance to try their hands at basketball, golf, volleyball, swimming and more today during the NCAA Student-Athlete Experience from noon to 2 p.m. at the Bouck Hall Gymnasium.

The program, hosted by the SUNY Cobleskill Department of Sport & Exercise, offered participants the chance to experience some of the physical and technical aspects of being a college athlete in all the Fighting Tigers sports, under the direction and supervision of student-athletes. They also had the opportunity to receive prizes and have an official athletic department photo headshot taken during the event.

The Student-Athlete Experience kicked off NCAA Division III Week, an opportunity to celebrate the positive influence of athletics and student-athletes on college campuses and the surrounding communities.
