For those of you who don't know me I am Graham Stoppenhagen and I am a Junior Sport Ad major with a marketing minor here at Ball State. All my life I have been surrounded by sports for as long as I can remember. As a kid who grows up loving sports, you always have that dream of becoming a professional athlete. But for some of us, we are not as lucky to have that opportunity but we still want to make sports a part of our lives and be involved in the industry. That is why choosing Sport Administration at Ball State was a no-brainer for me.
In the Sport Ad program, I have been able to learn so much about the sport industry so far through my three years here at Ball State, and my two years admitted into the program. Learning about all the aspects from Finance, Law, Communication, the list just goes on and on. Having classes like that are much more interesting to sit through than you general elective courses, so for those of you who are still trying to work your way through those don't worry there is light at the end of the tunnel!
