STRIPED is P.A.W. Journey’s Personal Growth pillar. Tigers are not born; tigers are made. Becoming a Tiger is about building character, facing adversity, becoming better and ultimately stronger. Personal growth is the continuous effort to become the best you. STRIPED is the process we utilize to inspire our student-athletes towards maturity. The Tiger is known by its stripes. Each stripe represents a lesson learned, a victory earned, or a battle fought.
These words embody this pillar: character, confidence, conviction.

The mission of C.U. IN LIFE is to equip our young men with the transferable tools necessary for a lifestyle of winning and address them as a whole person. Events within this program will teach our student-athletes critical life skills necessary to be respected and impactful men of society. Topics include finances, nutrition, etiquette and professionalism. This program also highlights our young men as servant leaders, providing them with opportunities in civic engagement. Whether it is in the local community, or across the world, tigers develop cultural competencies through sustainable service initiatives.
