As a relatively new high school health and physical education teacher, I knew I needed to find a continuing education program that would be useful in my field. As I researched various programs and universities, I couldn't help but be drawn to the academic reputation of Penn State University. As I investigated further, I found that many of my colleagues had completed their master’s degrees at Penn State Harrisburg, and had plenty of praise for the education, facilities, and professors. Shortly after making my decision to become a Nittany Lion, I discovered first hand what I had heard from friends who had gone before me was true. What I appreciated the most from my experience at Penn State Harrisburg was the professors in my program. They made learning relevant and enjoyable, creating lessons and projects that were engaging. They also understood that I was more than just a student. As a husband, new father, full-time educator, and a coach, I had commitments pulling me everywhere. The professors were extremely flexible and encouraging throughout the challenges of each new course. I couldn't have graduated without them!

When I choose this program I was working for a public health agency whose primary focus was health promotion. I recall meeting with Sam to discuss the possible job opportunities and how the program may benefit me. I also recall taking a few classes to make sure this was the direction I wanted to go before actually applying to the program. Penn State Harrisburg was close and the class times were convenient for me. It helped me tremendously as it prepared me to take the CHES exam and increase my knowledge in the field of health promotion.
