Mission Statement

Our mission as an organization is to perform service to the community on and off campus, perform service to professional organizations such as IAPHERD, AAPHERD, IPRA, NRPA, NTRS, and NIRSA, contribute to and foster professional interaction and growth among the membership, and serve as a social organization for Physical Education and Recreation majors.

Professional Development Opportunities

We promote and strongly encourage our members to meet practitioners and enhance their network through volunteer opportunities that we provide and attending professional conferences as well. We also encourage our members to become involved in professional organizations.

Social Gatherings

Our members establish team building by hosting events and collaborating with other organizations. We have had game night, hosted a speed dating event, competitive basketball games, and collaborated with a new fraternity with a masquerade ball.
