CHSE Ambassador Katie Anderson
Katie is in CHSE's School of Kinesiology with a concentration in Human Movement Science.
Q: Why did you choose LSU?
A: My family and I have been huge tiger fans ever since I was a little girl. When it came time for me to decide on a university to attend, I quickly realized that the hospitality and spirit on and around LSU does not compare to any other campus, and I knew I could never be anything but a tiger!
Q:Why did you choose Kinesiology as your major?
A: I chose to major in Kinesiology because I knew I wanted to go into the field of healthcare, and no other major offers courses that are not only preparing me educationally for a career in healthcare, but are also pushing me to be a better communicator, professional, and person.
Q: What are you most excited for this semester?
A: This semester I am most excited for a great football season!
Q: Why did you apply to be a CHSE Ambassador?
A: When I first came to LSU, I started out in a different college and major because I had no knowledge of CHSE or the School of Kinesiology for that matter. As an ambassador, I want to make sure incoming freshman hear about our college and all of the programs and opportunities we offer, so that they can begin their college journey here and start taking advantages of the many resources early on.
Q: What advice would you give to someone contemplating your major?
A: I would say that if someone is interested in working with people in a healthcare setting, Kinesiology is the best major they could choose. A kinesiology degree means taking courses that include subjects like anatomy and biology, but also courses like tests and measurements that really give you an idea of the work you will be doing once you graduate. There are also many elective opportunities for a student to take courses that they find interesting that aren’t necessarily part of the degree track, like interior design, philosophy, and many more.
Q: What is something that surprised you about LSU or CHSE?
A: The plethora of resources for students. From pre-professional school advisors to alumni liaisons to community service coordinators, there are so many opportunities for students to get involved around campus, as well as out in the community in their chosen field.
Q: What do you plan to do with your degree once you graduate?
A: I plan on attending professional school in hopes of earning a doctoral degree.
An interesting fact about me is one of my arms is a couple inches shorter than the other due to an injury.
My dream job would be being a host for my own show on the Travel Channel where I would travel, eat, and wake up in a new paradise every day
My favorite LSU tradition is the playing of the alma mater by the bell tower everyday at noon.
