“My Viterbo education was very broad in the sense that I was taking classes in management, biology, as well as core classes in sport science. The spectrum showed me different levels of thinking and challenged me to broaden my way of thinking. Now that I have transitioned to graduate school, I have found that my degree courses prepared me for the critical analysis needed in graduate level classes. In my sport science and biology coursework, I was always challenged to take processes and apply them to situations in which everything might not be particularly right within the body or environment. This critical thinking has made the transition easier for myself and I’m grateful that I was challenged so much at Viterbo.”
