Team DePauw

Segment #2 from DePauw University


Let’s say hello to a Emiliano. He’s a men’s soccer midfielder. DePauw University has an incredible 23, Division III men’s and women’s varsity teams, and with them a huge contingent of high-energy student athletes. Emiliano is here to tell us what it’s like to be a member of Team DePauw on and off the field. Passing it to you, Emiliano.

Thank you so much for the introduction, Alex. I didn’t really know what I was looking for in a university when I was in high school. If I’m going to be honest, I was just looking for a school that had my major and one that was willing to offer me a spot on their soccer team. Here I have been blessed that DePauw was able to offer me both of these things. I am able to set an example for my younger brothers, cousins, and everyone else across the globe that has a similar story as mine. DePauw does a great job at getting not only their student athletes, but their entire student body is involved in various programs and organizations. Because I am an athlete, I’ve been given the opportunity to help bring back the fellowship of Christian athletes as well as lead the diverse athlete association on campus, but I have been drawn back to multiple campus leadership opportunities outside of sports, such as being a residential assistant and admissions intern, and being a part of the Air Force ROTC program in collaboration with a nearby university. My soccer team supports each other on the field and off the field. We know we have the support from all of team DePauw, no matter what sport we play. Every coach here at DePauw wants to get to know every single athlete on campus, whether they’re on their team or not. Because of this, DePauw has some of the best school spirit in the country. Even though we’re a smaller school, Team DePauw always seems to show up. When I first got to DePauw, I thought I was gonna be someone who just went to class and played soccer, but that just isn’t the case here. Whether you’re a student or a student athlete, you’ll be guided toward ways to be involved on campus. This is how DePauw is able to build a community that feels like family. That is all for me. Back to you, Alex.

Emiliano, that was great. We love to see Tigers supporting Tigers both on the field and in the classroom, especially, at a school where you don’t have to give up your love of the game to score life goals. Cheers, Emiliano.
