Speech Communication Major, with a Minor in Therapeutic Recreation

"The Therapeutic Recreation department has been more than what I expected it to be. The professors for my TR courses have instilled a wide range of knowledge in me — not only regarding the curriculum, but on how to be holistically mindful in the human service field. I’m certain that I will confidentially use the skills my professors taught me in all my future endeavors."
