Scholar-Athlete Spotlight

Marissa Norman ’12

February was a great month for senior Track and Field standout Marissa Norman, who won two pentathalon titles—first at the Atlantic 10 Indoor Championships, and then at the New England Indoor Championships.

Norman is a psychology major who has been accepted to graduate programs in sports psychology at both Springfield College and Barry University. She isn’t sure where she’ll decide to go, but she plans to eventually complete a doctoral program in clinical psychology and pursue a career in sports psychology with a college or professional athletic program.

UPDATE: In March, Marissa was named to the A-10 All-Conference Team and was also honored with the URI 2012 Althea Gibson Scholar-Athlete Award.
