    Meet our grads: Lance Hare I first started when I was 21 as a nutrition major, but I got to a point where I didn’t feel like I wanted to be a registered dietician anymore, so I decided to drop out and go back to the drawing board. I went back to working retail as a full-time manager, and after a while I thought, “Hey, WVU has an exercise physiology program—that might be worth looking into.” And so I did. While researching what I could do with the degree, I was thinking that this would be a cool stepping stone to get my feet wet in medicine for PA school.

    Meet our grads: Seth Burk I chose the West Virginia University nursing program partially because when I stepped on campus when I was a junior in high school, I feel in love with the school, with the pride of the school. The gold and blue is contagious. The guy who gave me the tour told me he didn't even walk in his graduation ceremony. Instead, he spent his time in New Zealand. I was like, "Oh, that's pretty cool."
