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.
A World of Flavors Courtesy of National Nutrition Month
The theme for 2022 is “Celebrate a World of Flavors.” Life U is making a point to celebrate with delicious and diverse flair, holding several events to kick off this amazing month of health and wellness. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (also known as Eat Right) promotes National Nutrition Month annually each March to invite people “to learn about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits.”
Faces of LIFE: Alexis Martinez
Life University is right in Alexis Martinez’s backyard. Born in Chicago, the Bachelor of Science in Dietetics student has lived in Cobb County, Georgia her whole life. When she started looking for a nutrition degree program, Martinez discovered LIFE was the perfect fit.
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.
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.
When Floridian Samantha Silliker was looking for a place to obtain her education, she applied to only one school – Life University.
Now at LIFE pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dietetics, Silliker says that she has always known that she wanted to do something in the healthcare field. As a matter of fact, she originally wanted to go into nursing and even obtained her CNA (certified nursing assistant) certification while in high school.
