"Dr. Ensign and Dr. Headley were outstanding professors and truly made my experience at Judson a great one. They helped me to realize my academic potential and motivated me to be the best student I could be. The exercise science classes, while being fun and interesting, sparked my interest to pursue a graduate degree and provided the fundamental knowledge I needed to begin my career in sport science."
