Swarthout draws accolades on and off the field

Mary Swarthout had offers to play lacrosse for Division I athletics programs at other universities, but none of them promised her what she really wanted: a chance to play sports and still graduate with a nursing degree in four years.

“Those schools made it clear that nursing was one of the hardest majors to complete while playing Division I lacrosse,” says Swarthout. “In the end I wanted to make sure that I could graduate with a nursing degree in four years and Catholic University was the perfect place to do that. It was not easy to turn down Division I offers at the time, but I would not change my decision.”
