WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 Music 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:11.000 I chose to come to Western for my Exercise Science degree so I could connect more with faculty and students on campus as well as getting great hands on experience. 00:00:11.000 --> 00:00:18.000 Music 00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:20.000 The second phase is the buzz phase. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:24.000 So this is while you're running down field, sort of in this position 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.000 You need to get yourself under control. 00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:32.000 This week in my Kinesiology class for exercise science, we got to present a full body analysis of a sports motion. 00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:39.000 My group covered a football tackle. We talked about the different joints, actions, muscles, and exercises you can do to create a more forceful motion. 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:44.000 What I really like about my classes here at Western is how knowledge the staff and faculty are. 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:49.000 I'm able to meet with them and discuss more in depth than what we just covered in lecture. 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:53.000 So I have a greater understanding and can apply it to my own life and future career better. 00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:59.000 Besides just going to classes, I personally think it's really important to be involved in the student voice as well as leadership positions on campus. 00:00:59.000 --> 00:00:62.000 Which is why I'm currently the student body president here at Western. 00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:07.000 This experience will allow me to grow as a leader and an individual, which will help me stand out in my future career. 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:11.000 After graduating from Western, I plan to become a physical therapist. 00:01:11.000 --> 00:01:18.000 And the experiences I've had here working in the exercise science lab have really built a foundation of knowledge and understanding of how the body works 00:01:18.000 --> 00:01:21.000 which will help me in my career as a physical therapist. 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:25.000 I transferred to Western from a larger university and I would really recommend that other students come to Western 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:31.000 as it has a very small, close knit community that's very easy to feel welcome and a part of. 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:34.000 Western Oregon University is exactly what I was looking for. 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:40.000 Music.
