Major

Kinesiology: Pre-Healthcare Specialization

My advice for incoming or prospective students.

College is such a scary and exciting time. It is also what YOU make it. So when you get to college don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Take risks, get involved in clubs, join intramural sports; find something that fulfills you and run with it.

Why I chose my major.

I chose Kinesiology because I love science, but even further, I love athletics. Our bodies are amazing and the mechanisms behind them are fascinating! I'm passionate about Kinesiology because it perfectly blends sports and science together for me. After I graduate I am hoping to take a gap year to work and travel while preparing for Physical Therapy school!

What I like most about Western.

I love the community feel here. Western is the perfect size making it easy to find your people here- whether it be through your classes or through our amazing clubs (we have over 200 of them!)
