At the CLEMMYs (Clemson's athletic and academic awards banquet for student-athletes), she was named the ACC Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year, for maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher, being an outstanding citizen and role model, serving in leadership positions and performing community service, in addition to performing with distinction as a member of a varsity team, earning conference, regional, and/or national recognition. Also at the CLEMMYs, Koelzer was named to Clemson's All-Academic Team, for having the highest GPA on the women's tennis team. Previously, Koelzer has been named to the All-ACC Academic Team (2014) and Clemson's President's List, for having a 4.0 GPA in a given semester.

Koelzer also has impressive career goals for herself after she is done playing tennis:

"I have always been interested in Broadcasting. I would like to work for a TV station and broadcast tennis matches, or any other sporting events. I also would love to write and work in the communications field. I could imagine working for a company such as Nike and running their social media accounts and developing the internal communications within the company."
