Brandi Mitchell signs with Fairleigh Dickinson U

Brandi Mitchell

Sport: Softball

Family: Parents Dean & Lisa Mitchell, and sister Amy Davis.

College choice: Fairleigh Dickinson University, a private university with its main campus in Teaneck, N.J. Founded in 1942, Fairleigh Dickinson University currently offers more than 100 individual degree programs to its students. The FDU Knights are a Division I program that plays in the Northeast Conference.

Why Fairleigh Dickinson?: I chose this college because I felt it was the best overall fit for me. Academics are very important, and this school allows me to major in biology, and be in an accelerated combined degree program to become a chiropractor. I’ve always wanted to play softball at the collegiate level, and this school al- lowed me to reach my potential. The coaches and campus were also very important factors that helped me make my final decision when deciding what college to spend the next four years.

Major: Biology

Favorite IR memory: My favorite memory at Indian River was winning dodgeball with my classmates during Spirit Week.

Additional information: I want to thank my parents and the rest of the family for coming to all my games over the years, and pushing me to be the best person I can be.
