Why UT Tyler?: I was impressed with what UTT had to offer me academically and athletically. I’m excited about the opportunity to play Volleyball and be part of one of the best nursing schools in the state and country. Growing up in a military family I have lived in several different places, but now that my parents are retired and returned to Texas, I wanted to stay fairly close. Tyler is perfect as it is only 2 hours away from home! I fell in love with the campus last summer when my Mom and I visited. The lake is awesome!
