In One Sentence...

I had an amazing time at UCSD and felt that being a student athlete opened up a lot more doors and experiences that I wouldnt normally have access to

Pros...

The biggest pro of being a student athlete at UCSD is being a student there. It is a world class institution and your degree from there will benefit you throughout your career after athletics ends for you
