Faces of LIFE- Amber Sproule

Amber Sproule grew up in Middle Georgia, and she is the second oldest of five kids. Sproule’s older sister graduated last quarter from the chiropractic program at Life University (Life U), so a vitalistic approach to education clearly runs in the family. “Life University caught my eye because of the holistic and vitalistic values and because it is one of the very few colleges in Georgia that offers dietetics as a degree. I also loved the peaceful campus environment and that it was close to my family,” said Sproule.

My 1st Quarter: Tatum Johnson

Take every opportunity you can. Join the clubs you never thought you liked. One time I sat in on the Nutrition Club with one of my teammates and even though I am not in any dietetics classes, I thought it was so fun. So, make sure to try every opportunity even if you don’t think it’s what you wanted. Just try it, it’s going to be okay.

Communicating with your professors is important, and that it’s not going to be easy. It’s definitely going to get harder as you go, but that’s not a reason to stop or to quit; the reward is greater at the end.

Jessie Hulsey

Hulsey’s best advice for a new student is to make sure you get involved. “I struggled at Kennesaw because I didn’t join clubs and other social activities.” Currently, Hulsey is the treasurer for the Nutrition Club and the social media and events chair, and it has been really rewarding. Hulsey planned the nutrition fair for National Nutrition Month that was held at LIFE on March 5.
