Can you share some features of your experience at SFU at are positive or unique?
"At SFU you get a one-on-one experience with the professors. This really helps you to learn al that you can. You are not just a number because they know you by name."
Why did you choose SFU when you were first applying to PT schools?
"SFU had the one-on-one experience, plus you did not have to compete for spots. As long as you kept your grades up, you were in the program."
Do you see any advantages of an education at SFU compared with either more urban or larger universities?
"You do not have the distractions that you would at an urban setting. These professors care about you and are willing to do what they can to help you succeed."
What would you like to share about SFU or the PT major with prospective freshmen?
"SFU PT will make you a strong and competent therapist. You will leave SFU with many close contacts as well as entry level skills."
What are you doing now?
"I work full time in an outpatient setting but also help out in acute care and home health. I have a great family and two dogs. I also try to further my education with at least two additional therapy courses a year."
