“I feel that my instructors and the PE Chair actually know who I am and personally care about my success.”

-- Megan
Clarkston, MI

Megan plans to teach and coach Physical Education at the junior high level.

Why did you choose to study PE at U-M?

Because not only does it line up with my career interests and aspirations, but the program is also small and very supportive. I feel that my instructors and the Physical Education Chair actually know who I am and personally care about my success. This support is vital to getting the most out of my college experience.

What are your future career plans?

I plan to teach and coach at the junior high level. Eventually I would like to get more involved in the advocacy of Physical Education and its importance in battling the childhood obesity epidemic.

What extra-curricular activities are you involved in?

I have been involved in a number of activities, including being a Kinesiology Peer Mentor. I am also a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. I have served on the Planning Committee for U-M Relay for Life as well as the Activity Director for the Pre-Physician Assistant Club. I also served as a peer mentor for the Women In Science and Engineering Residential Program (WISE-RP) and have been involved in K-grams (a pen-pal program between U-M and local elementary school students).
