Here is a question: How does a competitive gymnast become a quidditch player?
Well, you will have to ask junior intelligence and national security student Lindsey Stang, president of the CCU Quidditch Club.
“I joined the team my freshman year which was really odd because I had no clue what it was, how to play it, or even that it was part of Harry Potter,” Lindsey explains.
To say that branching out and trying something new so early in her college experience was a good move is an understatement. Becoming involved with quidditch has provided Lindsey with her closest friends, a leadership position and a way to fuel her competitive nature. It has also given her confidence that has extended beyond the pitch.
“CCU has really given me opportunities to get into leadership roles and get out of my comfort zone,” Lindsey says.
Besides running point for the CCU Quidditch Club, Lindsey works for University Recreation as a lifeguard. She also doubles as an auditor, testing University Recreation employees on their CPR and first aid skills. She is passionate about the intelligence and national security program, praising Coastal Carolina for offering such a unique major. Describing herself as driven, Lindsey plans to use her academic background and concern for others to one day work for the Department of Justice.
“Growing up as a kid, I always wanted to have a career that I would really enjoy,” says Lindsey. “Working for the Department of Justice would let me do that but also allow me to help people who can’t help themselves.”
