AU alumna Alexy Mollenhauer is living her dream as a professional athlete
What was your major?
My major (was) secondary English education with a minor in mathematics.
What was your fondest memory at Anderson University?
One of my favorite memories at Anderson University was going undefeated in conference my junior year. It was an amazing experience and something I will never forget. That year was the most fun I had playing basketball because of the team chemistry on and off the court. Winning always helps, but we were having fun just playing together. There were definitely some close games, but we were able to accomplish a lot together as a team.
Why did you go to Anderson University instead of another university, and what will you cherish about your experiences the University?
The community at Anderson University. The community and family within athletics and academics at Anderson University is what brought me here. I wanted to be in a program that challenged me as a person and player both on and off the court.
There are a lot of things I will cherish from my time at Anderson University, but the thing I will cherish the most is the friendships I made with my teammates, coaches, faculty and staff, and all the people I met at Anderson University. I have met some amazing people at Anderson University and their friendships are something I will always have.
What are you doing professionally now that you graduated, and how is your new adventure going? What have you learned since you graduated ?
I have just signed with a professional team in Madrid, Spain. I will play the 2020-2021 season for the Spanish Pro team, Leganés.I am excited about this new adventure and getting to travel. The main thing that I have learned and always held onto is Jesus. He is the only thing in this world that is constant and will never change, so I am continuing to learn to trust Him in all things.
Is there anything else you’d like to add about your experience at AU or what you’re doing now?
As a whole, I just want to thank the Anderson University community for supporting me in my four years. I loved my time at Anderson University, and I am so thankful for all of you who have been a part of my journey.
