I chose UE because I wanted to be in a program where I would receive hands-on experience from day one and connect with other students. The athletic training program at UE does just that. Starting my first week on campus, I was in the athletic training room and I was able to see what being an athletic trainer is all about. The AT program has small class sizes which makes it easy to get to know everyone of all grades in the program. One of my favorite parts of the AT program is that students of all grades work closely together to treat the variety of Division I athletes on UE’s campus. This allows a student to gain a vast variety of knowledge since the athletes have a variety of injuries.
