An interesting photo of me from winter break
Contributed by Brad Fuller
After being away from class for about a month, it feels good to be back, but I am feeling the stress of being an athletic training student now. This semester is my toughest one yet, in which I have 14 credit hours of athletic training courses, plus a philosophy class and an honors seminar for a full schedule of 18 credit hours. While I will be very busy in the upcoming months, I’m looking forward to gaining an immense amount of knowledge this semester, which will help me in my future career as a physical therapist. I know that all of the study time will pay off. This month in my clinical rotation, I am with the men’s basketball team, which I am really looking forward to! One major way basketball is better than indoor track is that it is all indoors! Sounds confusing, but the indoor track team runs outside and we cover their practices.
This semester, my blogs will again focus on Athletic Training, Residence Life, and Campus life in general. However, I may have the occasional blog about some new music that I am into. I can’t wait for the 2012 releases to start rolling out! Best regards to you this month, wherever life may lead you.

Saying goodbye to nice weather for the year
Contributed by Brad Fuller
This part of the fall semester is the hardest part of the year for me. During the spring, there is a week break right in the middle of the semester, which evenly breaks up the semester. In the fall, we don’t get a substantial break until thanksgiving. This can be especially difficult when you have a heavy class load. However, the break is almost a reality! It will be nice to get to go home and spend some time with family and friends, while only halfway studying for finals, which are quickly approaching. Thanksgiving is usually the time a stop wishing it was warm outside and accepting that winter is almost here.
During my Athletic Training hours this month, I have been with the indoor track team. They are usually fairly low maintenance and injury free, so we have been discussing and reviewing various subjects at practices. Although I am learning a lot that I have not learned in class, it will be very helpful once I have taken all of the classes and practice time will be good for reviewing. The best way to learn is through discussion and practical application, things that cannot be learned as easily in the classroom. Next semester (spring of sophomore year) is when the workload really picks up and we learn a lot of the information we will be using on a daily basis. I’ll be looking forward to knowing how to do injury evaluations and making rehab programs!
