Austin feels right at home at The Cliff, even though his home is over 1,500 miles away.

Austin “Bart” Carter (’22), from Tampa, FL, jumped at the opportunity to become a part of the Charger baseball team. After touring the hilltop campus and learning about the excellent exercise physiology (kinesiology) program he knew Briar Cliff was where he needed to be. The vast amount of physiology equipment, individualized learning path towards his desired career, and strong sense of community amongst his teammates and classmates made his decision to attend BCU an easy one.

Austin considers Briar Cliff his second home. Between the support he receives from his professors and coaches, Austin feels like he can tackle any problem head on.

“At Briar Cliff, I matter. My coaches and professors are helping me reach my dreams and goals. Whether that be meeting individually to further understand my assignments or breaking down my pitch to see where I can improve my control.” 

When Austin isn’t focusing on his two passions: perfecting his pitch and mastering the skills needed to get into grad school, he enjoys spending time working out, hanging out with his roommates, or getting in a game of “Fortnite with the boys.”

After his time at The Cliff, Austin hopes to further his education and become a chiropractor in his home state of Florida.
