Notre Dame caught Briana Johnson’s eye as it consisted of the qualities that she wanted in a school. “It was so close that I can go home and see my family whenever I want to. The scholarship made it affordable to attend, and seeing that it is division III, I could be a student athlete."
Playing lacrosse for all four years of her college career, Johnson learned that being a student-athlete consists of balancing her academics, sports, clubs and social life. “Being a student-athlete has taught me time management and organizational skills. By being part of a team, I learned how to work better with different personalities, be more adaptable to situations, and gained leadership skills.”
“Playing a sport was an outlet; it gave me time to take a break from school, life, or anything that stressed me out by releasing frustration and not worrying about anything outside lacrosse. I have grown to love lacrosse and my team even more. I have enjoyed playing and learning from my experiences and will be sad that this will be my last season.”
