Kenneth Wojnowski Jr. chose to attend UB because it offered everything he was looking for in a school, including proximity to his hometown and the program offering of his choice.
“I selected the public health professions, and
specifically exercise science, because I have always been involved
in athletics and I am fascinated by the many systems of the human
body,” he said. “Choosing a major in which you learn
about the body’s responses to exercise and certain diseases
was a logical choice for me. Also, I believe it is important
to help others, and using my knowledge about the human body to help
others is something that appeals to me very much.”
UB’s large student population, learning concepts with real-world applications and the program faculty topped Wojnowski’s list of favorite aspects of campus life. “The professors clearly wanted the students to succeed and did anything in their power to help,” he said. “Also, they were very adept at using their own experiences to help teach.”
He advises prospective students to “become involved as much as possible both in and out of classes. There are many things to do regarding the health sciences outside of classes, and in the classroom it is important to involve yourself to retain material and truly get the entire experience of the ES major.”
Wojnowski graduated in 2013 and plans to attend medical school.
