Spotlight - Jackson McPheeters
EXSS pre-professional, Pre-Physician Assistant
Why you chose UE?
I chose UE because of its direct entry PT/PA programs, small class sizes, and because it offered me the ability to compete in cross country & track & field at the DI level.
What is your favorite thing about UE?
My favorite thing about UE is the amount of attention I receive from my professors. During COVID-19, I have had professors that have zoom calls with the class solely to answer questions and concerns, which would be hard with a larger university. You truly are not just a number or a name, you are a valued student!
Any other helpful information about your major or any advice, remembering what it was like to go through the college search?
My advice would be to not stress about what field you are going into. That sorts itself out more once you are here on campus interacting with new people and new information in your classes. Plans change, and that is more than okay! I also advise that if you do have an interest in a healthcare setting that you shadow a professional. Shadowing is a great way to gauge your true interests and make new connections!
