Read more about Tyler’s college journey.
I am originally from Nashville, Tennessee, and moved to Lansing when I was 12-years-old. At the time of my high school graduation, I was also playing football. The Olivet College football staff recruited me to play, and the rest is history.
In addition to football, I am the president of the Greek organization Alpha Xi Omega, also known as ELITE. This came about my junior year when I decided to pledge. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and the things that I am used to doing daily. I wanted more responsibility, and I also wanted to be motivated and held accountable by guys that I know carry themselves well. Crossing has made me a better man, son, friend and individual.
The fitness management major and I were a match made in heaven. I have always been intrigued by health and exercise as an athlete growing up. I will become a certified Sports Specific Trainer, which is along the same lines as a strength and conditioning coach. I will open my own facility and work with athletes from middle school up to the professional level. At the end of August, I was blessed with an opportunity to start an internship at the Human Performance Institute in Dewitt. The program they have set up will lead to bigger and better things for me.
The faculty and staff at Olivet have been tremendous for my growth, not only as a student, but as a man. The professors in the Health and Human Performance Department have motivated me and guided me on a path toward success. I have gone through a lot of adversity since enrolling in the fall of 2016, but relying on others that care for you will take you far.
I want other students to know that when coming into college, you should expect everything to be harder. But don’t scare yourself — just know being on your own for the first time will bring challenges that you may have never experienced. Use note cards, use a planner, and remember, business before pleasure in everything you do. The diversity that this campus offers gives students an opportunity to explore many different scenes and activities.
Lastly, I want to stress that the story you tell others about your experiences should not include hardship, adversity or something that stopped you — perseverance and determination is the true story.
