Volleyball player Giovanna Giacobbo, enrolled in the Luiss bachelor’s degree program in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, was one of the torchbearers for the Universiade di Napoli 2019: "It was such an honor for me, as I fully believe in the values of the event and I respect the student-athletes that are participating. I experienced mixed emotions: the joy of participating in the event and the nervousness for being given such a great responsibility.”
The athlete joined the Luiss volleyball team in 2018-2019: “From my first day, I felt right at home and I consider my teammates true friends, and we are able to face both victory and defeat together. We are united by reciprocal respect. I thank Luiss for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful and educational experience.”
“Luiss Sport is in continual growth and offers so many initiatives and projects. For me, like many athletes, Luiss Sport Academy was a great opportunity to grow both academically and in my sport.”
In the student-athlete’s opinion, one of the University’s biggest strengths is the variety of academic and athletic programs, as are the professionalism and experience of the faculty, and the opportunity to participate in other events to enrich students’ academic preparation.
“Personally, I find Luiss staff, and especially our team manager, to be great resources. There is always someone passionate and ready to help us, both on the field and off.
