Michael Pettit

"Having the opportunity to study at a liberal arts college that provides a vast range of courses allowed me to gain knowledge in many areas outside of my biology major and ESSS minor. One of the most critical characteristics that a physical therapist must have is the ability to relate to their patients — to build a relationship with them. The knowledge I gained through CSB/SJU was tremendous in that category." Michael Pettit
