Reflect on your progress this semester. What was good? What was bad? What was your favorite thing you experienced as an ATS? How will your experiences from this semester influence your start of next semester?
Throughout this semester, I really enjoyed being an athletic training student. Of course, I was stressed but I have learned so much. I am finally in a classes I really enjoy, so it makes so much easier to want to study and attend classes. My favorite thing I experienced as an AT is the respect you get from other athletes. I know sometimes it seems to athetes we fill up water bottles and stretch them, but to others we do impact them. The show a lot of respect to athletic training students. I also really enjoy getting to know the athletes better. I have built multiple relationships with athletes that before we both did not even know of. I also really enjoy the professors and preceptors that are in the AT program. This is the only major that gets to be with this people, and I am so thankful to be a part of the program with them. Each professor and preceptor has helped me so much already and I am just in first semester. I know I am going to have a very good relationship with each of them and I am glad to have the people there for me. I believe this semester has really shown myself a lot. I did not think I would be able to survive as an athletic training student, but I am still here and I am actually being more successful than surving. I am glad I choose to try this major becuase I know this is what I am for sure on majoring in. I know a lot of the times it would be easier to pick another major and I would have more time too, but there is not another major I would want to be in. I believe i am going to go into next semester with a strong attitude. I also now know how to apply myself and how to make myself the most successful. I have learned how to use itme mangement because of volleyball and AT hours. So second semester might be a bit easier because I have more resources than I did this semester.
