The Pacific University exercise science program was a quick-sell for Trevor Schongalla ’12.
The central Oregon-native had long been interested in pursuing a career in the health professions, and specifically in physical therapy.
“I happened to read about exercise science as a field, and it appealed to me on a very basic level,” he said. “It appealed to me at such a high level that I declared my major in my first semester.”
At Pacific, Schongalla has appreciated a high-quality program with excellent faculty support.
“I came in knowing it was a great program and knowing I’d have a powerhouse education,” he said. “I didn’t know I’d have such a good experience.”
