I’ve really enjoyed university so far. It has pushed me in so many more ways than I could have anticipated, not just academically but also within my personal relationships as well. The opportunities I’ve had and the people that I’ve met will stick with me forever.

Great professors in the Kinesiology department, although this university is heavily focused on athletic therapy. It would be nice to see them expand their facilities and resources for those interested in exercise science.
