How did you discover Western?

When I was searching Exercise Physiology graduate programs in Colorado, I came across the High Altitude Exercise Physiology master's at Western. I immediately contacted the program director and started the ball rolling. After several great conversations and a visit to campus and the town, I knew it would be the perfect fit for me. After graduating from that program, I obtained a teaching position in the undergraduate Recreation, Exercise & Sport Science Department. Again, a perfect fit!
