What A Graduate Has to Say

“A couple of years ago I realized I needed to be better prepared for the goals I had in mind, and a master’s degree was a crucial part of that process. Ohio University allowed me to get that degree while learning specifically about my field – soccer! I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this program, and even though it was fully online, the support network you will find through colleagues and professors is exceptional. Achieving this degree was an extremely important milestone in my life, and I will be forever grateful for this opportunity.”
- Mario Zuniga-Gil, Class of 2022, United Soccer Coaches 30 Under 30 Award Recipient
