As a transfer student, I chose this university as an incoming sophomore in order to commute from home and save money. I also chose it because the Exercise Science program is reputed as one of the best in the country.
The Course Curriculum really sets you apart from students in other university exercise science programs. It is extremely challenging and the professors really push you to achieve your ultimate potential.
