Marissa DiMarco '12
Exercise Science and Physical Education Graduate; On the Women's Soccer Team
"After visiting Catawba a few times, I knew it was where I was going to be spending the next four years of my college career. Soccer was a major influence of my decision, but it was the beautiful campus, the warm weather, the small class sizes, and the Physical Education Department that solidified my decision. Since I was young, I knew I wanted to teach. I love being around sports and being active, so Physical Education was the perfect fit. I chose to double major in Physical Education and Exercise Science because I want to educate and motivate children to live a healthy life through eating properly and exercise. In the future, I plan on teaching and coaching, along with being a personal trainer. Eventually, I would also love to get my Master’s degree in Nutrition, but who knows what the future will bring!"
