Women’s basketball player Albrecht featured in Commencement profile

Walking across the Events Center floor to thunderous applause during Commencement won’t be foreign to Kim Albrecht.

After all, she spent four years in the building playing with and leading the Binghamton University women’s basketball team.

“I imagine it will be an emotional day,” Albrecht said of her Harpur College Commencement ceremony. “I’m glad that it’s taking place where I played. But it will be tough because I won’t be able to come back and visit easily.”

Following Commencement, Albrecht will take her geography degree and head to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she will pursue a double master’s degree in architecture and urban planning. Albrecht hopes to someday design houses. It’s a fitting goal for someone who has helped lay the foundation for a women’s basketball program on the rise while serving as a role model for other scholar-athletes.
