Survey for Student-Athletes

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

“Leave it all on the field!” This has been a mantra for all athletes and coaches in their competitive athletic events on the field. The question is, “What about off the field when an athlete is no longer able to compete?”

Practices, watching film, meetings with coaches, and studying stats have all helped athletes prepare for
obstacles on the field. What preparations do athletes make for off it? George Fox provides resources to athletes such as gyms, fields and specialty equipment to prepare for their sport. When it comes to preparing for a career, what resources does George Fox offer and do student-athletes utilize them?

Student-athletes, you have been asked to participate in this senior research project to help determine whether or not George Fox provides the proper resources to help student-athletes transition from sports retirement to a career life and if athletes utilize them or not.

The survey is made up of 25 required questions (marked by asterisks), four not required, and eight optional text boxes that will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
