A Passion Turned Into a Career Opportunity

Wenzel studies in the Center for Orthopedic and Biomechanics Research lab, where he learns about human movement’s mechanical and neuromuscular characteristics.

A lifelong athlete, Thomas Wenzel chose to pursue a kinesiology degree with the Boise State University College of Health Sciences to work in a field related to his love of athletics. Today, the junior is working toward his bachelor’s degree, with plans to continue his studies in a graduate program and eventually a career in research.

His Personal Health and Applied Anatomy classes, taught by Dr. Taylor Thompson and Dr. Phil Ford, confirmed his interest in pursuing a degree in kinesiology.

“Boise State makes getting involved very accessible, which is something I like,” Wenzel said. “Being able to reach out to all the faculty and having opportunities to use all the university’s resources has been valuable.”
