Student Stories

Brittany Johnson

“Dance and Movement Studies (DMS) at Allegheny helped me to craft a gift I didn’t even know was present when I first started dancing at the age of four. Not only did I grow to love dance even more, but I learned that movement speaks in a way that can bring purpose and maybe even answers.”

Amanda Woodside

Amanda Woodside, ’13, always knew she wanted to become a Physical Therapist (PT).
“In high school, I enrolled in an allied health internship where we studied and shadowed all of the local health professions. I liked that the PT led patients through exercises, did hands-on physical manipulations, and talked to them about how to become mobile once again and what changes they could make in their daily lives to be sure they were caring for their bodies properly.”
