Creating real life experiences and opportunities for our AC Students is always a priority on campus. Dr. Keith Christy and Dr. Charles Reid have taken this to the next level in our Sports Management Department, and they have the statewide and national rankings to prove that. Just last month, Adrian College was ranked #3 as the best Sports Management school in the State of Michigan and #60 in the United States!

This past year, students from the Sports Management program got hands-on experiences working the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa, FL. We also had over 20 students work the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland, Ohio in April.

On the docket for this upcoming year, we have over 20 students that will be working the 2022 College Football National Championship game in Indianapolis, IN. This is a great opportunity for the students to see how a mega sporting event operates from the inside and they will gain invaluable experience and connections with this event. The trip will be funded by money the students raise from various fundraisers they’ve completed and from generous donors

If you would like to support these students, please follow this link: http://adrian.edu/give/give-today. Choose “other” on the drop-down menu and type Sports Management in the notes selection. Thank you for considering a gift to help those student experiences.
