Majors: Sociology and Pre-Physical Therapy

Why this major?

Even though I am only a sophomore, I am already on my third major. I applied to Carroll as a nursing major, then I was studying exercise science for pre-physical therapy. Now I am a sociology major and in the pre-physical therapy program. Sociology allows me to see the world in a new perspective. I think that will help me in the future when I am working with patients.

What is your career objective?

My career objective is to be a physical therapist for pediatrics or work for an in-patient center. I am not completely sure what field I will end up in, but I will be happy as long as I am helping people.

How has what you’ve learned prepared you for your future?  

I have already begun to learn all about the bones, muscles and their movements. I have also learned about the cultures of other people and how this might affect my interactions with them.

Have you had opportunities to work closely with Carroll faculty?

I love that Carroll has smaller class sizes and that my professors actually know who I am. One of my professors from my first year met with every student before an essay was due. During these meetings, he would go over my entire essay, give me feedback and even discuss topics from class. This was a great resource that allowed me to improve my grade for that class.

What is the most memorable experience you’ve had in your education at Carroll?

My most memorable experience I’ve had in my education at Carroll was a series of three reports I did in a previous sociology class. We chose and researched a social condition over the entire semester and showed why it is a problem in today’s society. My topic was educational inequality and it was one of my favorite projects that I ever got to do.

How has Carroll enriched your growth as a person?

All throughout high school I ran cross country and had a passion for running. At Carroll, I am still able to run on the cross country team and keep up with my academics. Being a student-athlete has allowed me to become more responsible and build time-management skills.

What would you say to someone considering sociology?

I would tell them that after class they may be mind-boggled, but in a good way. Many times, I left class unable to wrap my mind around some of the concepts we talked about. It was and still is so interesting to see a whole other perspective of society.

How has financial aid made a difference in your life?

I receive scholarships from both Carroll and from the country club I work for back home. This financial aid has helped myself and my family tremendously because we don’t have to worry about paying loans in the future.

What’s your favorite place to study on campus?

My favorite place to study on campus is the patio outside of the library. Of course, I can only study outside on warm days.
