Most impactful professor at HPU: “There is no way I can narrow it down to one professor, especially within the Athletic Training department.

They each hold unique skills that have created a fabulous Athletic Training Education Program.”
Most impactful moment at HPU: In the Department of Athletic Training, all seniors passed their Board of Certification Exam on the first try.
