What our students are saying...

Physical Education

I'm excited about my major because P.E. teacher have a unique opportunity to give kids a positive experience with physical activity, providing them the tools they need to lead healthy lives. Plus, my major is also preparing me to coach, which opens up a whole other realm of opportunities.
