Where sport means community

Audrey—class of 2018

Audrey Kriss
Major: Marketing and Sociology
Hometown: Salt Lake City, UT

In high school, Audrey Kriss played a lot of sports. “That was my safe place,” she reminisces. “The only place I could truly be myself.”

Now at Westminster, Audrey has found that her safe place has grown to envelop classes in marketing and gender studies, her community on campus, her favorite coffee shop in Sugar House, and the welcoming culture of the surrounding city.

“I found my place when I came out to my friends and classmates and was greeted with love and open arms”

And of course, she still loves sports. Audrey is like many Westminster student-athletes, in that she’s passionate about many aspects of campus athletics. She plays on the college golf team, traveling all over the West for tournaments. She plays intramural soccer throughout the year, and finds joy on the hiking and ski trails of the Wasatch Mountains.

For Audrey, athletics at Westminster are as much about community as they are about sport, so when she’s not playing, she can be found in her role of VP of The Nest—Westminster Athletics Student Section—or in the bleachers cheering on the Griffins.

“I never imagined I would love a school as much as I do here. There are so many ways to get involved and meet amazing people.”
