Fontbonne is a unique experience in terms of working in a collegiate setting. While this experience has given us a closer look into the ins and outs of the physical work athletic trainers do, what we have really seen is the importance athletic trainers are to their athletes. Athlete’s dedication to his or her sport (refer to the previous comments on early morning workouts) was impressive, but their interactions with each athletic trainer were one that was truly remarkable. Fontbonne is a very open place where it is easy to feel comfortable asking questions and trying new things. We have had a very great time here and are very thankful for this amazing opportunity.
