Why UT Tyler?: "I chose to attend UT Tyler because it’s a beautiful campus that is prestigious both in the classroom and on the softball field. I love the “family” type atmosphere that the campus brings, while still having a big university feel to it. The softball program’s credentials and success also made it clear that UT Tyler was the perfect place to attend school!”
