SNU's Anthony Deason Excels in Sport Management
For Anthony Deason, being part of the Southern Nazarene University family is the perfect fit for him and there is no other place he would want to receive an education.
“The culture and the values that SNU stand by are second to none. It was a great opportunity for me to grow in the classroom, spiritually, and on the baseball field,” said Deason. “I’m in my second year of being a Graduate Assistant. I work with the infielders and pitchers along with being the first base coach. I also help with the field/facilities maintenance.”
As a student in the SNU Master’s of Sports Management program, Deason felt the program would put him on the right career path.
“This program will not only help me on the field by giving me coaching experience at the college level, but it gives me flexibility on what I want to do after I graduate,” said Deason. “Southern Nazarene University is a place that is very interested in the success of its students. Academics are obviously a big part of college student success, but something that makes SNU stand out from other colleges is its desire to help people grow individually and socially. There are always opportunities to grow in these ways at SNU and the faculty is rooting for the success of all students! Arguably the best thing the school has to offer is the personal connection that is developed with the professors. SNU has plenty of resources to help students succeed.”
The program surprised Deason in a good way.
“Southern Nazarene University is a very welcoming school. It does not take long to feel at home. Because it is a small university the community that it offers is outstanding,” said Deason.
Deason said if he had to do it all over again, SNU would be his choice of schools.
"The campus staff is helpful and knowledgeable,” said Deason. “SNU cares about each student and their success."
