5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I will be starting the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at my school in the fall. This program requires you to do volunteer work each week along with clinical hours during the second year of study. There are many readings, case study reports, and presentations. The facility we use is the Health Professions building, along with where ever you complete your clinicals. There are several job opportunities upon completion of the program that can either be local or farther away.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I loved being a Kinesiology major! The classes were engaging for the most part and I really enjoyed my professors. Unfortunately, being a Kinesiology major wasn't enough to get me where I want to be, therefore, I will be attending Illinois State University in the Fall as an Athletic Training major and Parkland College as a Massage Therapy major. ISU will fulfill my dream of becoming an Athletic Trainer and getting my Associates degree in massage therapy will make me more marketable in the career.
