For 50 years, UMass Boston has provided a lifetime of opportunity to our students.
Elizabeth Glavan ’16
Business Major, College of Management
Defensive Specialist, Women’s Volleyball
A celebrated student-athlete in high school, Elizabeth knew UMass Boston would be a university where she’d continue to excel.
In fact, she just had one of the most impressive freshman seasons in UMass Boston’s history, named the program’s first “Little East Conference Defensive Player of the Year.”
But she knows this wouldn’t have been possible without her team by her side.
“I can’t touch the ball twice in a row. Instead, as a Beacon volleyball player, I work with my teammates to win.”
Elizabeth understands that “teaming up” helps achieve her educational goals, too.
A support system of mentors like coaches Condon and Houlihan, as well as her professors and classmates, motivates her to successfully be a student first: Her grades are at the top of her class.
Surrounding herself with people who encourage her to do her best is one of Elizabeth’s “keys to life-long success.” And at UMass Boston, those people aren’t in short supply.
Help us keep our 50-year commitment to a lifetime of opportunity going strong!
