Why Mount Union
I chose Mount Union for its small and beautiful campus and close intimate atmosphere. The faculty and staff were also very approachable.
Mount Union prepared me to go on to complete a M.S. Degree in Exercise Physiology, work on PhD in Exercise Science and Public Health and currently completing PhD in Health Sciences through Rocky Mountain University for Health Professions.
I enjoy receiving the Alumni Magazine in the mail and I still interact with college friends/alumni and give annually to the alumni office fundraisers.
Lots of hands-on experiences helped prepare me for me current career. Taking on leadership roles in extracurricular activities gave me the confidence to step up into leadership positions throughout my career. I was also awarded the MLK Jr. Award in 1993 at Mount Union (wow - a long time ago now.)
Favorite Part of My Job
