LIFE SKILLS 
Under the direction of Kathy Raines, February is an exciting time for our CHAMPS/Life Skills program, both in the seminar topics we're offering and in the number of former TCU student-athletes involved in leading these seminars. Already this month, we have provided career networking training and opportunities for our sophomores, juniors and seniors. We're presenting a two-part series about the changes in psychological and nutritional needs student-athletes face as they transition out of training and competition after graduation. The Athletics Department is also co-hosting, with the TCU Alcohol and Drug Education Center, a special presentation about alcohol awareness as part of the Safe Spring Break Campaign.

BENCHMARKING 
Scott Kull, our associate athletics director for external operations, has returned from a very productive two days of meetings in Tampa. Organized by our future Big East Conference rival USF, a group of 16 schools located in pro markets met to discuss marketing strategies. Benchmarking other institutions and the swapping of ideas among colleagues is always very helpful in evaluating how we do things and finding ways to get better. On the heels of our record-breaking year for football season-ticket sales, we hope others were able to benefit from some of our initiatives.
