Saintsation and PT Student Mallory Flynn Shares Her Story

Recently we heard from Alex Tepoorten, a sophomore PT student and Saintsation. Read about Mallory Flynn's experience at SLU below! Mallory is a senior PT student and has been on the Saintsation Spirit Squad since her sophomore year.

I decided to join the Saintsations Spirit Squad my sophomore year. I was on my high school’s dance team, and was captain my senior year. My co-captain from high school also decided to attend SLU, and we decided tryout for the dance team because we missed dancing so much.

I am so glad we did tryout because I have had the opportunity to be a part of the Billiken community in a way I never thought possible. I have been given the fortune of meeting so many wonderful people, traveling all across the country, and gaining memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. This past year was definitely the most exciting with the basketball team winning the A-10 Conference as well as traveling to NCAA. I am so grateful for being able to travel with the Athletic Department and team to Brooklyn and San Jose. Cheering on the Men’s Basketball team has been such a fun adventure, and being a part of the Saintsation’s team has made college experience so unique and worthwhile.

I have always been set on attending SLU, but I decided to apply to the Program in Physical Therapy after visiting and taking a Health Sciences tour. I heard many students and teachers speak about the Program, and I fell in love with the idea of becoming a physical therapist. I applied for the program as soon as I returned home.
