Jeremiah is a freshman Health Science major, Rehabilitation emphasis, with a minor in Psychology. He is from Jefferson City, Missouri. Jeremiah hopes to get his undergraduate degree in three years then pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Jeremiah’s advice to new students coming to Mizzou would be to not simply go to class but get involved in class.

“Students can really get engaged in the class by asking questions, getting to know their teacher, and actually paying attention in class by taking notes,” he says. “Another piece of advice I’d offer students is to get involved as fast as you can and don’t be complacent.”

Jeremiah is in Theta Chi Fraternity and serves as a proctor at study hours, the head athletic liaison, and is involved in the Standards Committee. Jeremiah also is a standardized patient for future physical therapists getting ready to graduate. Jeremiah also has been involved in service within his fraternity.
