High fidelity Simulations
Are you lookig into athletic training, but nervous about how you will respond in a real emergency? For this exact reason, our athletic training program gives students the opportunity to participate in high fidelity simulations. Our realistic simulations allow students to test their knowledge and see how they react under pressure, while in a situation where the stakes are low.
Additional Resources and Opportunities
The Agape Center offers a wide variety of service as well as leadership opportunities. You can volunteer to help in a local community supported agriculture program, assist a local food pantry, provide companionship for an elderly person or join a US or international mission trip.
The Collaboratory is a group of faculty and students who meet weekly to work on projects for underserved communities. Collaboratory projects are designed to enable students to use and develop knowledge and skills in their academic major as they serve.
Student Nutrition Awareness Coalition
The Student Nutrition Awareness Coalition (SNAC) is a Student Government Association sponsored club. SNAC members participate in local service projects and food and nutrition related activities on campus. SNAC is a great way to put your classwork into practice and to develop leadership skills.
