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.
