ATSO is hosting a Chipotle Fundraiser in hopes that future athletic training students can have a better understanding of what their career might look like on Nov. 5.
According to ACU’s College of Education and Human Services, the Athletic Training Student Organization (ATSO) seeks to prepare students who wish to enter a master’s degree program in athletic training. ATSO encourages all current athletic training majors who are interesting in further pursuing a master’s degree to attend the fundraiser and learn more about what a professional career in athletic training looks like.
Casey Clendennen, 25, is the current president of ATSO and an ACU graduate student for athletic training. According to Clendennen, the fundraiser is mostly a way for the club to gain some more recognition on campus, as the club is widely unknown to most students. The fundraiser, while open to all students at ACU, is directed mainly towards students in athletic training.
“What it’s mainly going to do is help out future students that are going to be athletic training students to just kind of get more of an idea of what it’s going to be like,” Clendennen said.
Clendennen further commented on how the fundraiser currently has not set a goal to reach in terms of profit. Rather, the goal is to be more focused on the interactions between current ATSO members and students who are interested in the organization.
“What we might do with that money is to go to another school and see that training facility,” Clendennen said.
The fundraiser will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 5 at the Chipotle on South Clack St. and will be open to any ACU student and athletic training student that wishes to attend.
“Hopefully you love Chipotle,” Clendennen said.
