Kinesiology Club

The Kinesiology Club aims to:

  • Provide opportunities for connecting members with outside resources to further their education/career goals
  • Raise awareness of the field of sport and exercise science
  • Bring students from the Kinesiology Department together

We typically meet once a quarter to hold a general meeting where students can network, discuss any upcoming Kinesiology Department programs, and brainstorm how we can promote our club and field on campus. Meetings are fairly informal and casual, as we want members to use it as a time to meet other students from the Sport and Exercise Science (SPEX) major.

 

Past Events Include

University of Washington Dietician Guest Speaker

May 15, 2019

Guest lecture with one of the UW’s Sports Dietitians about monitoring the nutritional intake of Division 1 athletes and all other aspects of her job.

American College of Sports Medicine Northwest Annual Meeting

March 1-2, 2019

Faculty, staff, and students from the Kinesiology Department traveled to Bend, OR for the American College of Sports Medicine Northwest Annual Meeting. The group networked with both current and new colleagues and supported their collaborative research with the University of Oregon that is examining cardiopulmonary physiology. 

SPEX Alumni Panels

Calls to our out-of-state alumni in combination with in-person alumni to ask questions about their paths post-Seattle U, what their PT/OT school admission process was like, and what current SPEX students should be doing to improve their profile as a future health professional. 

Group Fitness Fit2Go class in collaboration with the Redhawk Fitness Center

Fitness class activity facilitated by a SPEX alumni and current UREC personal trainer. It was a neat experience for us to ask questions about what personal trainer work looks like from a recent grad, along with getting a chance to get our sweat on during pre-finals week!
