There are always things to do with the Campus recreational center at SFASU.
Whether it’s planning a camping trip or putting on a basketball tournament, the Campus Rec likes to showcase different ways for all students to get into fitness and to be involved.
One of the first things coming up in November is the Campus Rec Job Fair on Nov. 12. The job fair will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the rec center. Participants should be dressing professionally, as on-sight interviews will be conducted during the fair. The rec center is looking to hire students for the following positions:
- Service Assistant
- Fitness Assistant
- Swim instructor
- Sport Club Supervisor
- IMS Game Supervisor
- Climbing Wall Specialist
Students who plan to participate in the job fair should also bring their resumes and be prepared to answer interview questions.
On Nov. 13, the campus rec will be hosting a Wellness Fair to help students become more aware about their wellness level. This event will take place from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Baker Pattillo Student Center Twilight Ballroom. SFA recognizes seven dimensions of wellness: socio-cultural, spiritual, environmental, physical, emotional, career-financial, and intellectual. This event helps students learn about these aspects and more.
Students can look forward to receiving health and wellness information from on and off campus vendors. The offerings included in the fair are blood screenings, body composition assessments, nutrition information and more. Vendors who are participating are:
