Sydney is a Kinesiology major from Williamsburg, VA.
My academic experience with the Education School has been nothing but positive. The professors in the Kinesiology department are so knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects they teach. Classes are engaging, educational, and provide information that I know I can practically apply in the future. I love the atmosphere the Education School provides. While I think UVA can come across as being very academically cutthroat, the Ed School is extremely supportive. I know that the professors there want me to succeed not only as a student but also as an individual. Having that support system has gotten me through some of my most difficult times at UVA.
Outside of class, I am a member of the UVA Rock Climbing Team and a trip leader for the outdoors club. I also am a tutor for Hoos Helping Learners in Madison House. In my free time, I love hiking, yoga, crafts, and taking care of plants.
After graduation, I plan on pursuing a two-year master's in Athletic Training at UVA. I am interested in athletic injury, because I like how it combines emergency treatment with long-term recovery.
