Amazing people

June 04, 2024

James McHoneSoccer is a big part of James McHone’s life, and he was excited when Trine University offered him the chance to play.

“When I arrived on campus, I was nervous but excited to start my new life,” the Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, native said. “Yes, I was far from home, but it was cool to see what my home would be for the next four years.”

He said Trine has become home because of the amazing people he met here, especially his girlfriend, whom he met his freshman year.

He plans to coach soccer now that he has graduated and hopes to eventually coach at the college or professional level.

He suggested that prospective students do their research before committing fully to make sure Trine or any other university is the right fit.

“Don't stress about what you want to do when you first come to school,” he said. “You will have plenty of time to figure out what your purpose is and what you will pursue going forward.”
