A USA Today article about scholarships features comments from Jen Hilgenberg, a former women's basketball student-athlete at Villanova University. Hilgenberg runs a customized merchandising business and she credits her participation in college sports as the foundation for her ability to be a successful businesswoman.
"It was absolutely a lot of work, but it was an amazing experience. As a business professional, it taught me almost every life lesson as far as being successful afterward: the teamwork, the commitment factor and learning how to prioritize your time, which is huge in the real world."
