A Day in the Life: Travis Marcus


Travis Marcus is a junior from the city of South Lyon, Mich., and is on the Siena Heights men’s bowling team.

Marcus wakes up every day between 7 and 8 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays and works on his two online classes. He finishes their assignments roughly around 10 a.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, he does the same thing, but he goes to class on campus.

On Feb. 18, here was how his day went:


7:15 a.m.: Wake up eat breakfast and make bed

8:30 a.m. Leave for class 

9-9:50 a.m.: Class

10-11:15 a.m.: Class

11:30 a.m. Lunch 

1 p.m.: Team workout in fieldhouse 

2 p.m.: Nap3:40 p.m.: Leave for practice 

4-5:30 p.m.: Practice

6 p.m.: Make dinner 

7-8:45 p.m.: Homework 

Midnight: bed 

When asked about this busy schedule, he said, “I mean it’s very tough at times, but at the same time it keeps me busy and you get used to it after a while.”

Shouldn’t non-student-athletes have straight A’s?

“All I’m going to say is if you are a student and you are not on a team and you do not work, then you have no excuse to be getting bad grades,” he said.

When asked he ever heard anyone call his sport “a joke,” he said, “Of course I hear jokes about bowling not being a real sport, but I do not care. I am still getting my education for free.”
