Athletic Training Alumni Chapter

Happy 2nd Birthday to our AT Alumni Chapter!!! While our Chapter is two years old, we have only had one full year of opportunities and programming to share with our fellow West Chester AT alumni. We began the year with alumni social events hosted during the PATS and NATA meetings. In November 2023, we hosted a free virtual CEU session, Navigating Mental Health Screenings: Review of Best Practices, presented by West Chester AT faculty member, Dr. Lindsey Keenan. Over 100 Athletic Trainers participated in this excellent hour-long CEU event. We also were able to match 23 WCU AT alumni with the 23 Master in Athletic Training students who graduated in May 2024. This mentoring program which offered three in-classroom presentation by alum, Dr. Paula Sammarone Turocy, allowed the mentor/mentee partners to meet at least three times (and some met more than 3x) to discuss the mentees’ preparation steps and needs (eg CV, interview practice) for job searches and interviews. The program received excellent feedback from all those involved, and it will be offered again to the next group of graduating WCU AT students during the 2024-2025 academic year. We participated in the WCU Rams Day of Giving, raising additional funds for future AT Alumni events. Finally, we attempted to offer a second low-cost CEU event on the West Chester campus, in conjunction with the AT Department Golf Outing, in April 2024, but due to low enrollment, this event was cancelled.

Our next and final event of the 2023-2024 academic year is an WCU AT Alumni Reception that will be held on Wednesday, June 26th in conjunction with the NATA National Meeting and Symposium in New Orleans, LA. This event will be held from 5:00 pm to 8:00 PM at Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria, 301 N. Peters Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. Drinks and appetizers will be free!! Please pre-register so that we have enough refreshments for everyone: WCUF-Events-Athletic Training (

The Athletic Training Chapter (ATC) is an Affinity Chapter of the West Chester University Alumni Association (WCUAA) established in August 2023. All alumni of West Chester University’s (West Chester State College) Athletic Training program are members of ATC, because we are Golden “Rams for Life”.  The purpose of the WCUAA-ATC is to engage Athletic Training Alumni with the University and its Athletic Training Program within the Sports Medicine Department, facilitate Alumni to Alumni communication/collaboration, promote the interests of West Chester University, support the West Chester University Alumni Association, and to increase alumni awareness of the University's and program’s needs.
