During my first year as an Athletic Training Student at Emory & Henry I have grown tremendously as a student. The rigor of this program combined with baseball have really taught me how to better manage my time between classwork, baseball and free time. This program has helped me become more mentally tough when it comes to my work ethic as well, due to the work load and the help that all of my preceptors give me. A couple events that have stood out to me during my time in the program are the football camps I have experienced. Having to balance running around the campus checking on coolers as well as watching the guys practice and looking for issues on the field is pretty tough. I had a multitude of minor injuries that I had to manage during both of these camps. I was also able to see a couple of my first major injuries on an athletic field. This program has really changed the way I view my academics by showing me that school is enjoyable when you are learning about the things you want to do in life. I look forward to being able to learn more about the profession next year, especially learning some things about strength and conditioning.
