Marc Hunka – Multi-Age Education, Health and Physical Education

2
Q: What is your name and major?
A: Marc Hunka. I’m an Education major at The University of Findlay.

Q: What is something hands-on you’ve been able to do at Findlay?
We get to participate in Health Kids Day and I’ve even had opportunities in the classroom where we’re able to go out and get extra field experience in place of taking an exam.

Q: What’s the best part about being an education student?
I’ve always been really into working out and I really like coaching. A big aspect of physical education is coaching and teaching kids how to develop new skills and build upon what they know.

Q: What is one thing that you love to do on campus?
We have a really nice rec center. I like to utilize the cardio room. I’m also on the football team, so I get to work with our strength staff.

Q: Do you have advice for students making their college decision?
Make sure you go into the major you want. I know when I was looking at schools I was looking for the school that would give me the most scholarship money for football, but in the end I chose UF because it had physical education and I knew that was the major I wanted to be in.
