Alumni Feature - Paul Venturella '03
Why did you chose to attend Lynchburg College?
I chose to come to the Burg for a couple reasons. First, I really enjoyed the atmosphere of games and the campus life when I would come visit my brother. Another reason I chose to attend was my brother really thought that the team was on the up and coming (which it proved to be). The education style and methods suited me as well from my visits and questioning people that had attended. My perspective was a little different being a transfer but I am truly glad that I ended up at the Burg.
My greatest lacrosse memory is of course seeing the ball hit the back of the net in the ODAC Championship against Washington & Lee in 2003. All the hard work we put in over the year culminating in that win, against a team we could never seem to hold a lead against. The second would be beating Salisbury on an ugly day in the middle of the week, incredible game.
How has Lynchburg College helped you in your life after college?
Lynchburg helped me be able to adapt to the situations that life has thrown at me. Taught me how to roll with the punches and still come out prepared for the real world. The education provided the knowledge and real world experience to succeed in the post collegiate life.
