We asked Emma Morgan-Bennett, a student-athlete at Swarthmore College, about her recent experience with the Division III Student Immersion Program.     

What was most memorable about the program?  It provided me the opportunity to network with professionals; as well as bond with my peers who were in the program.

What lessons did you learn that you want to share with other students?  I was encouraged that the NCAA is trying to increase its diversity in that they want young, smart and engaged students of color to contribute professionally to Division III.  It is important to actively recruit diverse personnel.
