Capital University men's soccer senior Bob Weisgarber took us inside a typical day in her life through Instagram photos as part of the university's "And Experience" initiative.

 

Weisgarber, a goalkeeper from Columbus, Ohio, took time to show us what life is like for student-athletes at Capital. The two-time Academic All-OAC honoree's typical day includes several hours spent at Nationwide Children's Hospital, coaching high school soccer, a full class schedule, practices and matches.

 

A four-year starter, Weisgarber and the Crusaders host cross-town rival Otterbein in the team's regular season finale this Saturday at 2 p.m. before beginning Ohio Athletic Conference Tournament play next week.

 

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 student part.
