                     Spotlight on Exercise Science

During this inaugural year of our implementation of the ACSM’s Certified Exercise Physiologist exam, our students achieved more than double the national pass rate for the exam. HESA majors had an 85% pass rate on the ACSM EP-C, while the national pass rate was 41%. CRUSHED IT!!!!

TCNJ HES Interns continue to impress faculty and internship evaluators with their projects. This year was no different. Below are highlights of students/projects that made a huge impact.
