Over 150 new freshman students traveled from out of state to arrive in Slippery Rock over the course of the past week. Meredith Canfield, an incoming student from Anaheim, a city in Southern California, came for the Physical Therapy program.
“I am interested in studying physical therapy and researched universities with physical therapy programs,” Canfield said. “Slippery Rock is one of the top physical therapy schools.”
According to Canfield, she even toured the campus in the cold and snow flurries, but she liked what she saw. “I felt at home on the campus and the people were very welcoming,” Canfield said.
“Western Pennsylvania will definitely be a different lifestyle than Southern California. I am looking forward to experiencing the change of seasons and living in a smaller, more rural community. I am fortunate that I have family, Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins who live within driving distance to Slippery Rock.”
