We continue on with our 2013-14 "And Experience" initiative by featuring one student-athlete's experience each day during NCAA Division III Week, a celebration and recognition of the Division III student-athlete experience, from April 7-13.
Capital University men's tennis junior Kenny Duncan took us inside a typical day in his life through Instagram photos as part of the university's "And Experience" initiative and the NCAA's Division III Week.
Smith, a native of Poland, Ohio, took time to show us what life is like for student-athletes at Capital. The financial economics and marketing major's typical day includes a full class schedule, making outside connections in the economics world and fulfilling his membership in Phi Kappa Psi and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee in addition to practices, travel and games with the men's tennis program.
Duncan earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference accolades in 2012 and last season was one of three players on the men's tennis team to garner Academic All-OAC honors. Duncan and the Crusaders, who host Mount Union this Saturday, look to earn a top-four seed and home match in the OAC Tournament.
Part of the experience of being a Crusader is having the ability to be both a student and an athlete, and not to have to choose one or the other. This "and" experience – the uniquely satisfying ability to be both a student and an athlete – should be celebrated.
We encourage student-athletes to share their photos of experiences in the classroom, in the community and beyond with us on Instagram, using the hashtags #AndExp and #capfam. We've got the athletics side covered – now we want your input on the rest of the college experience.
