Wesleyan Alumni Profile – Catching Up With Alex Murray

Name: Alex Murray ’12

Major: Business Administration

Minor: Marketing

Involvement: Basketball, Fellowship of Christian Athletes

Postgrad Career: Professional Model and Actor

How did NCWC prepare you for professional life? “My career path was hugely unexpected. However, being a business major and marketing minor was perfect. As a model, I am my own business. My professors taught me ways in which I can market myself, and I use what I learned every day. It is so important to be on point because you never know who you’ll see or who will see you, especially in a place like NYC or Miami.”

Most Impactful Professor/Coach? “I tried to build a relationship with each of my professors. However the most influential people for me were my coaches. John Thompson, David Doino, and Coach Mosely. Coach T was like a father; he really pushed me to be professional and carry myself in a manner that is a good representation of not only me, but my family, school, and groups I was active in. In the four years I spent being a part of the basketball program I grew tremendously, and I give a great deal of credit to the coaching staff.”
