As a student-athlete and Honors Business student, Alex Sborov is always on the go. Originally from Pleasanton, California, Alex committed to TCU in her junior year of high school for a golf scholarship.
Sborov’s love for golf began at an early age, when her dad started bringing Alex and her twin sister to the driving range when they were five years old. “We both just kind of decided it was what we wanted to do, we enjoyed it, and so it just kind of became a way of life”.
Along with her rigorous days in the gym and on the golf course: the busy life a student-athlete entails, Alex manages to maintain a 4.0 GPA and is a member of the TCU John V. Roach Honors College. “Sleep has become sort of a luxury”, Sborov said.
As a member of the Honors College, she feels that it has made her into a more well rounded person and has given her many networking opportunities. It also has given her an opportunity to meet other students who can relate to the busy life she lives. She credits meeting a lot of her peers to the opportunity of living in Milton-Daniel Hall, a dorm exclusively for students who are members of the John V. Roach Honors College.
Alex is not only a member of the Honors College, but is also a member of Neeley Fellows. It is a very prestigious program within the business school and entails a long interview process. Sborov was accepted into the program spring of her freshman year and is now beginning her junior year. She is studying finance and accounting.
Though she lives an extremely busy life, Sborov says she cannot imagine having her college experience any other way and is thankful for the opportunities she has been given in her academic and athletic career.
