Shine as an academic and an athlete

Brodie Vieweg '19 Kinesiology major and Psychology minorBrodie Vieweg ʼ19, a kinesiology major with an exercise science concentration and a psychology minor, started his college experience at a traditional semester school, then transferred to Cornell College.

“I was tired of the traditional schedule,” Brodie said.

“I view One Course At A Time as a much better learning tool for me.”

Brodie admits that his first block was challenging.

“It took some adjusting,” Brodie said. “It was definitely overwhelming at the time, and I am grateful for that experience. I learned so much about myself during that block.”

Brodie’s interests in sports, athletics, and movement are channeled through his major, enabling him to explore more fully what he’s most passionate about. Brodie isn’t just hitting the books all the time, he is a peer advocate and an athlete too, playing lacrosse at Cornell.

“My biggest achievement so far at Cornell was being one of the Paul Maaske Scholar-Athlete Award recipients,” he said. “It was a testament to the work I put in on the field and in the classroom.”

Brodie’s accolades include the Academic All-Midwest Lacrosse Conference in 2018 and 2017. In order to be eligible, a student-athlete must carry a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 for the academic year.
