Matthew Moyer-Men’s Basketball

Posted by on Monday, March 2, 2020 in Student-Athletes of the Month.

Matthew Moyer
Men’s Basketball
Major: Communication Studies

Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

I chose to attend Vanderbilt because of the stellar academics.  I am fully aware of the value of a degree from Vanderbilt.

What are your career goals?

My career goals are to play professional basketball for as long as possible and then I would like to work my way up to becoming a CEO. I feel I would also be good at a career in broadcast journalism.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

Being academically successful as a student-athlete at Vanderbilt takes extreme time management skills.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

I rarely go out.  The only way I can keep up with the demands of basketball and academics is to pretty much cut out a social life.  I know this will pay off!

What is your ritual before taking a test?

Coffee, lots of coffee – preferably Starbucks!  And I go over my study notes one last time.
