Take your first step toward a fulfilling career in Sport Studies.

I left the Marine Corps with a wife and two little girls that needed to be provided for. The classes I took in the fields of Homeland Security and Emergency Management opened up an entire career field that I had barely paid attention to before my time at Tulane. I am now the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director for a county in Alabama.
