College recruiting businesses entice students by telling them how beneficial it is to be a student athlete on a full scholarship. For students who play tennis, ask tennis businesses and they would tell you the following benefits of being an athlete scholar.
- The university will shoulder financial benefits – If you end up being a full-ride scholar, your entire expenses or a big part of it.
- Support system – Making the transition from high school to college is very hard for any student. But for student athletes, being part of a sports team means already being part of a circle. They already know where they fit in and can make friends immediately without feeling that they need to start from scratch.
- Timeline for graduation – When you become a student-athlete, there is a clear path in terms of when to graduate. Counselors dedicated to helping student athletes graduate on time will guide you.
