Current Students

“The Athletic Training Education Program here at the University of Charleston has been a great transition into college from high school and I feel that it will prepare me for the transition into the real world from college. You will not find better professors/advisors at any other school. I promise you that!”
— Stephan Ball, Chapmanville, WV, Class of 2011 

“I found that the program has given me a sense of direction in my life in which it will allow me to strive towards a career... The program has opened up a huge networking door for my career as well.”
— Lane Catlett, Caroline County, VA, Class of 2011 

“My experience in the UC Athletic Training Program has been great! The instructors and staff are excellent sources, and are great to get to know on a personal level. Small class sizes allow for more personalized instruction, and provide a great learning environment. The curriculum is strenuous, but being able to apply what you have learned on the field to help an athlete is an amazing sense of accomplishment that makes up for all the hard work. Athletic Training is a great way to keep around sports while also receiving a great education in the health sciences field.”
— David Yates, Poca, WV, Class of 2011 

“The athletic training program at the University of Charleston is very challenging. However, the athletic trainers at our school love what they do which helps make learning the material easier and enjoyable. Time management and work ethics are key attributes that will make one successful in the program.”
— German Hall, White Plains, MD, Class of 2012 

“I have enjoyed my time thus far in the program. I have learned more than I ever expected. This program has allowed me to participate in many amazing experiences, such as the District 3 Conference in Virginia Beach, Virginia and the Pittsburgh Marathon. Because of this program I will be able to have many great career opportunities.”
