Josephine Söderström starts her college career at Eastern Illinois University


Athletes Abroad college client Josephine Soderström has started her first semester at Eastern Illinois University where she is a defender for the women’s soccer team. She comes to EIU from Stockholm, Sweden, where she played senior soccer in Swedish Division 1 (tier 3) for Sätra IF.

Josephine joins a squad at EIU that finished last season 6-8-6 overall and 4-3-3 in the Ohio Valley conference. She is hoping to make an impact in the teams spring schedule that includes friendly matches against IUPUI, Northern Illinois, Ball State, and Illinois State.

Athletes Abroad wishes Josephine the best of luck in her first semester as a Panther! We are excited to follow her success on the field and in the classroom.
