“Students have a wide variety of opportunities available during their academic career. One of the favorites, for students, staff and faculty, occurs during Exercise Prescription class, when students are assigned to train a faculty or staff member for a semester. The volunteer list is always full and students are quick to jump at the chance to “turn the tables” on the staff and faculty. Students also do a great job learning proper Exercise testing procedures in the Exercise Science laboratory. They treat the laboratory as a second home, meeting to do homework, testing, or to hang out. It is rare to find the room empty, and that is good, as it shows how they are assimilating into their future professional environment.”
