Chrissy Krut ’15

Hometown: Clarks Summit, PAMajor: Exercise ScienceTrack: Cardiac RehabilitationExpected Graduation: Fall 2015

Her Campus: What kind of activities are you involved in on campus?Chrissy Krut: I’ve been a member of Bloomsburg’s Delta Zeta chapter of the national sorority Sigma Sigma Sigma for about a year and a half now. I recently joined the executive board and began my term as vice president in December of 2013.

HC:  What is your favorite part about being the vice president of Tri Sigma?CK:  I love working with the new members! It’s my job as VP to plan and carry out their new member education program. I’m their guide and help them learn and discover all the great things that come with being a part of Tri Sigma.

HC:  Do you think that people underestimate the time commitment and work load that holding such a position in a sorority requires?CK:  I know that I personally underestimated the workload that came with being VP.  I work closely with the new members and am responsible for them. I am in constant contact with the chapter, advisors, as well as our National Headquarters. I plan and host educational meetings for the new members twice a week in the Kehr Union Building.

HC:  What are some of your hobbies?CK:  I love being active! I love running, cycling, and yoga. When warmer weather comes, I like to kayak and go hiking. Fortunately I live in a more rural area, so I don’t have to travel too far to partake in these activities.

HC:  I understand you’ve got a half marathon coming up in a little over a week. Tell me about that.CK:  This will be my third half marathon, and the first annual Steam Town Half Marathon in Scranton, PA. I’m excited and nervous! I understand it is a hilly course, so I am anxious to see what’s in store for me.

HC:  What’s the most rewarding part of participating in races?CK:  The whole experience! Crossing the finish line after a distance race is something that can’t be put into words. I think that’s what makes long distance races so addicting. You have the opportunity to turn a setback into a comeback. Mile 8 may not have been the pace you were hoping for, so then mile 9 you focus, push yourself harder, and have a comeback. Running is definitely a lifetime sport, so there are always little victories to celebrate.

HC:  Although graduation is still a ways down the road, do you have any tentative post grad plans? Any internships or field-related work lined up?CK:  After graduating from BU, I’m planning on going to graduate school. I currently work at a local gym in my hometown, which exposes me to some of what the exercise science field has to offer.

HC:  What’s your dream job?CK:  To be part of a successful cardiac rehabilitation program in a major hospital.

HC:  Where do you see yourself in 10 years, professionally and personally?CK:  I hope to be well-traveled and living in a warmer climate. There’s the possibility of marriage and a family as well. Professionally, I expect to be a positive impact on the patients I will be working with.
