Chad Enwright isn’t your typical Canadian. Sure, he loves maple syrup and Tim Horton’s is his go-to for a caffeine fix. But when it comes to playing hockey?
“I’m like Bambi on ice,” he said.
So it’s no wonder the sophomore business administration major has chosen to pursue football throughout his college career. In addition to athletics, Chad serves as both a resident adviser and tutor. How does he handle this busy schedule?
“One thing I always say is, there are 24 hours in a day. You only sleep for eight of them,” he said. “There’s the rest of the time to do what you want to do.”
From All Ends of the Earth
What Chad wants to do is help people. Keeping up with the Canadian stereotype, Chad is, well, nice. After all, “there’s no reason not to be.” He’s the official advice giver for his friends. He shows wisdom beyond his years. And he knows he needs to make the most of these meaningful years of his life.
“It’s not about where you came from,” Chad said. “It’s about how you take advantage of your opportunities. It’s how you present yourself and make yourself succeed. You can come from all ends of the earth and you can make it happen.”
He only has one year under his belt, but Chad’s already sharing college advice with incoming freshmen.
“Nothing prepares you for college more than that first semester of college,” Chad said. “It’s having that mindset that everything is different than anything you’ve ever done before. But that’s the fun of the experience — getting to do new things on your own, having a good time and making connections.
“You’re going to face adversity, but you’re going to overcome it. You just have to work hard. Hard work pays off and everything gets easier. Life’s good. You’re going to be okay.”
