Exercise Science, Pre-Physical Therapy
Class Year: 2021
Toward the end of high school, I knew for sure that I wanted to be a physical therapist, and I was on the hunt for schools with great PT programs. I came across UE, visited the campus, and was like, “yep, this is the one.” It’s a small school, it’s a good distance from home, and it just had that close-community vibe. Everyone I talked to during my visits was super nice, and the advisors were very serious about the success of their students. After my first year, I’d say my favorite thing about UE is the people. From friends to faculty, I’ve noticed that people here care a lot about each other. They’re not afraid to go out of their way to help you or to just see how things are going. As a student going into PT, I think that caring kind of mentality will go a long way, and it’s something you can’t experience at every school.
