Kennedy Thacker has decided to attend VCU this fall. She will be majoring in kinesiology and going down the physical therapy route. Thacker is an athlete that has been through a few injuries over the years and her physical therapist inspired her to help other athletes. Thacker decided on VCU after seeing how diverse, urban, and open minded the university is. Thacker says, “Coming from a small town I always wanted a very different experience than what I’m used to,” and she has confidence that VCU will be that for her.
