Hi! My name is Allyson and I am a current student in Salisbury University’s Exercise Science program at The Universities at Shady Grove (USG). I first heard about the Exercise Science program at USG through my professors and counselors at Montgomery College. They highly recommended a pathway of courses that would lead me to being eligible to complete my bachelor’s degree at Salisbury University at USG.
I am very passionate about exercise. I love to see and study how the body moves, adapts and changes with exercise. But it’s not just about exercising, to me healthy living is about a balance of nutrition, health, exercise and being able to live your life to the fullest capacity. This program has given me the tools to be confident in the practical application of what I truly enjoy through countless supports systems and opportunities in my career field.
Here are a few other reasons I chose to complete my program at USG:
- Cost effective
- Close to home
- Lifelong mentors
- Career and internship opportunities
In the future I hope to use my knowledge and experience to be able to prescribe methods towards healthy living to people ranging from young adults and athletes to at-risk individuals suffering from chronic conditions and diseases. I’ll have to wait and see what the future has in store for me but I’ll have no doubt that USG was instrumental to my career!
Reflecting on the choice I made to attend USG, I know that it was the right one through the real-world knowledge that I’ve learned, the mentors that I’ve gained and friends that’ll last a lifetime!
