"The Kinesiology department was so accepting and helpful when I switched majors junior year. The professors truly care about the success of each student."

 - Danielle Lang, '17

"Georgetown's Kinesiology department is second to none. The KHS professors have all walked the walk in the health and fitness field and teach you how to apply the degree you're getting."

 - Sean Kratchman, '15

“My degree from GC was the key to unlocking the door for my current career as a licensed clinical social worker. I am certain that without the help of Dr. Jean Kiernan this would not have been possible.”

 - Julie Brawner, '07

“My education at Georgetown College with my major in Kinesiology and minor in Psychology helped set a good foundation for my career in Physical Therapy.  Prior to attending PT school I was able to build my baseline knowledge in the science of bodily injury and recovery based on the education I received during my time at Georgetown College.”

 - Shannon Kelley, '01

“As I am currently in graduate school for nursing, I have discovered that my exercise science major has better enabled me to view healthcare from a holistic standpoint. The knowledge I gained from my major allows me to deliver better care to patients every day.”

 - Whitley Sato, '11
