Getting to know Kristin Eggleston:
What is your favorite class and why?
"My favorite class this year is Sales Management. The professor is really interesting and makes class fun. He has a lot of experience and is always encouraging us to go outside of our comfort zone."
What is it like traveling to other schools to play against them? Is there such thing as a home court advantage in tennis?
"I really like traveling to other schools. It is fun to see different campuses and areas. But it is always nice to play at home and have the support of your friends."
