My name is Patrick Lovette. I am a 2010 graduate of UWA with a bachelor's degree in Physical Education, and I received my master's degree in Sports Management from the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) in 2015. I am originally from Choctaw County, Alabama, and knew from my initial visit that UWA was the right college choice for me. I loved walking around the beautiful campus - it made me feel at home. Over the last six years I have spent time working in multiple areas of higher education including: campus life, athletics, and admissions ... an area I've discovered I really love! I am excited to have the opportunity to help prospective students discover the great opportunities UWA has to offer.
Favorite Place on Campus?
The hill overlooking the baseball field. I’ve spent many days and nights on that hill watching the Tigers play.
What do you love most about UWA?
The friendly people and the willingness of everybody to help you. When I was a student I always knew there was someone on campus who not only welcomed my questions, but also made me feel like answering them and helping me was a priority.

Choosing a college is tough and you will have a lot of people trying to influence your choice. Make the choice that is right for you. Choose the college that will best help you in reaching your educational/career goals.
