Name: Alice Jeong
Program: Athletic training
Graduation year: 2019
Job title: Assistant athletic trainer, University of California, Berkeley
Q: What have you been doing since graduation?
A: I attended Illinois State University for my post-professional master's degree in athletic training while working as a graduate assistant athletic trainer for the ISU football team. After graduation, I was offered an athletic training fellow position at UC-Berkeley, which quickly became a full-time assistant position with the men's soccer and beach volleyball teams.
Q: What was your experience in the U-M School of Kinesiology like?
A: My experience in the Michigan Kinesiology program can be summed up as small classes, close-knit graduating class, and lots of hands-on experience at the highest level of collegiate level athletics.
Q: In your opinion, what's the best part of SoK?
A: The best part is the direct experience with Michigan Athletics and their sports medicine department. Having athletic training experience with a top tier Division I/Power 5 university is what allowed me to succeed in grad school as well as in my current position at another large Division I institution.
Q: How has your Kinesiology degree contributed to your success?
A: Without my Kinesiology degree, I never would've been set up to pursue athletic training at the collegiate level that I'd dreamed of. Receiving my education from the U-M School of Kinesiology gave me tools to become a certified athletic trainer and continue practicing as a clinician at a Power 5 university.
Q: What would you like prospective students to know about the School of Kinesiology?
A: The Michigan name will take you far in your career. The education and clinical experiences you get will prepare you for whichever path you decide to take after graduation.
