The Athletic Training Majors Club (AT Club) is a HPU Student Government Association (SGA) sanctioned club that is comprised of students that are declared athletic training majors in progress of application to the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) or enrolled in the ATEP. While the primary purpose of the club is to support and further the profession of athletic training by educating athletic training students through conferences, volunteer work, and keynote speakers it also provides an opportunity for networking with peers (HPU and outside HPU), exposure to career opportunities and board of certification (BOC) preparation, and engagement in social functions, fund raising, professional service and philanthropy.
