Harness the opportunity to learn from caring, knowledgeable professors like Dr. Juli Hinds, Chair of the Department of Communication and Sport Studies.

I’ve never had a professor like Dr. Hinds. One that goes out of her way to make sure each student is not only doing well academically, but also emotionally.
