Exercise Science


Fredericktown, Ohio

Why did you choose to attend Ohio Dominican University?
I chose Ohio Dominican because I loved the timeless feel of the campus and because it’s a small school. I was also awarded generous scholarships, which helped to make my ODU education affordable. 

What do you want to do after graduation?
I’m considering attending either physical therapy or physical therapy assistant school. I love working with people and helping them achieve goals. 

What is one unique experience you’ve had at ODU that has helped you grow personally, professionally and/or spiritually?
I had the opportunity to take a full class load at ODU as a high school student, which really put me ahead. When combining those credits with the credit I earned at my local community college, I’ll be able to graduate two years early! 

Share an example or story of how you discovered your passion at ODU.
Being at ODU has helped me narrow down my interests by allowing me to experience classes in all subject areas. I’ve learned that economics, philosophy, and statistics are all cool, but anatomy and exercise science are what I’m excited about.  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be when I first started here, (because exercise science is such a big field), but now I know what I want to be and how I want to live the rest of my life. 

Why are you proud to be an ODU student?
I’m proud to be an ODU student because I know I’m getting a first-class education here. I know that whatever I do after I graduate, I’ll be well prepared for it. I’ll be living proof of how amazing this university is!
