Halls:

Whether you’re interested in Athletic Training, Health Sciences or any other health-related major, we encourage you to consider the Future Health Professionals Learning Community as a great option for living on-campus.

The Future Health Professionals Learning Community helps students explore the variety of options within the health and medical fields through a partnership with the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Students will be exposed to career and professional options through programming, networking and site visits.

"My favorite part about being in Future Health Professionals was being around people with the same goals as mine. It made it easier to be myself and stay motivated. Joining Future Health Professionals puts you in a living environment that surrounds you with people in your same position and taking similar classes, making it easy to find support when you need it."
