Senior athletes share post-graduation plans

“I’m planning to get my master’s degree in electrical engineering at the University of Arkansas. I won’t be playing volleyball professionally, but hopefully I’ll be able to play for fun. Hopefully I can get a job as an engineer afterward.”

-Audrey Dearien, engineering major, volleyball

“Since I am an international student, I have applied for the Optional Practical Training program. Through it, I am planning to begin my professional career here in the U.S. and eventually move back to Brazil.”

-Guilherme Serrano Barbosa, international busineess major, men’s soccer

“I wanna get into the business side of things because that’s my major. I’ll be working in the trainee program here at the bookstore to learn how to become a better manager and just learn retail and things like that. It’ll probably be a few years until I start a family.”

-Cory Cole, business administration major, men’s soccer

“I’m plan to actually go to graduate school and get a master’s degree in clinical mental health psychology with an emphasis in play therapy. I want to be a counselor for children and then apply for medical school afterward.”
