Review Parkland College
I loved being a Kinesiology major! The classes were engaging for the most part and I really enjoyed my professors. Unfortunately, being a Kinesiology major wasn't enough to get me where I want to be, therefore, I will be attending Illinois State University in the Fall as an Athletic Training major and Parkland College as a Massage Therapy major. ISU will fulfill my dream of becoming an Athletic Trainer and getting my Associates degree in massage therapy will make me more marketable in the career.
I really enjoy going to Parkland College. I like that I have gotten to know some professors and staff very well. I went through the Personal Fitness Training program, which is unique because you actually get the experience of training clients (under the supervision of a certified personal trainer) during your last semester in the program. Many school will just prepare you for the national exam to become certified, but I found this experience to be invaluable. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because the knowledge I gained and relationships I built there were priceless. I'm still continuing my education there and am excited for the experiences to come.
I like to procrastinate, so I put everything off until the last minute, which is exactly what I would not recommend. It is a personal choice that I might not take another online class, but the one I took was awesome! If we had any questions, the teacher was very helpful and the discussion posts encouraged students to interact with one another.
