Exercise Science Club

The Exercise Science Club was founded in 2006. Its primary focus is on helping students interested in the area of exercise and physical activity explore options in professional development, mentorship, fellowship, and community service. Through the years of student-faculty leadership, the club has engaged in social activities that foster relationships, hosted guest speakers, and explored regional graduate programs. The club has also offered assistance to students to attend the regional ACSM conference each fall and organized educational field trips to Baltimore and Philadelphia. To help fund these activities, the club has sold t-shirts and sweatshirts.

The Exercise Science Club has actively provided service to the campus community. Members have participated in numerous volunteer opportunities such as: completing fitness assessments at the SU Wellness Fair, hosting a table to discuss the importance of blood pressure readings at the Go Red for Women event, and assisting with the Get Moving series that encourages SU employees to engage in physical activity and exercise. Being a member of the Exercise Science Club is a great way to (a) develop team building and leadership skills, (b) become involved with campus and community activities, and (c) meet other students interested in physical activity and exercise.

Exercise Science Honors Society

Founded in 2016, the purpose of the student-run Exercise Science Honors Society (ESHS) is to recognize Exercise Science Majors for their academic achievements and commitment to excellence. The ESHS serves the University through community service activities and by providing educational opportunities that benefit the local community. The ESHS has organized food drives for local food banks, academic career seminars, and provided service for community events like wellness fairs and road races.

The ESHS is open to any junior or senior student in the Exercise Science major who holds a GPA of 3.20 or higher. By joining the ESHS, students are able to create relationships with professionals in the workforce and gain insight regarding future career choices. ESHS membership is an asset when applying for a job, internship, or graduate school; and it also provides a way for students to give back to the program that has done so much for them.

If you are interested in joining the Exercise Science Honors Society, please contact the faculty advisor, Dr. Braun (wabrau@ship.edu), who will refer you to the current society president.
