Every week the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) of UNC Asheville will highlight a student-athlete who has achieved success off the field, court or course. This week we are highlighting Erin Ryan, a junior on the women's soccer team.


This summer Erin has been busy taking summer school classes, working with the Meals on Wheels Program, spending time with family, and training for the upcoming soccer season. She also has a part-time job at the PNC Arena in Raleigh where she assists with upcoming shows and events.


Though out her time at UNC Asheville Erin has spent time teaching young children how to play soccer through programs like Eliada Homes and the National Girls and Women in Sports Day.


After graduation Erin plans to attend graduate school in order to get her MBA.
