Hailing from Grimma, Germany, Martin von Thun ’25 is majoring in psychology along with playing on the Saints men’s soccer team.
“I had some personal problems a couple of years ago and thought about quitting soccer and our sports psychologist really helped during that time,” notes von Thun on why he is pursuing psychology. “After that, I started my interest in how the brain works.”
He is not sure where he will specialize.
“I think I would love to do something with sports, but on the other hand I think clinical psychology and research sounds really interesting as well,” said von Thun.
