Lutsen Ski Trip

Sunday, February 9th, 2020

This past Saturday, Outdoor Pursuit held an event for students to go skiing and snowboarding at Lutsen Mountains. When I saw that they would be making the trip up there, with steeply discounted tickets available, I jumped on the opportunity with my friend and we went. We met at 6:45 in the morning to begin the trip to Lutsen. In total, there was 11 students who went on the trip and I think it is safe to say we all had a blast! The guides were awesome and helpful. Between the weather, snowboarding, and new friends, I recommend Outdoor Pursuit events to all students if they wish to try new things and meet new people.   


Outdoor Pursuit

Sunday, January 26th, 2020

Outdoor Pursuit is the organization on campus designated to giving students access to the outdoors during all seasons. They provide year-round rentals for students, staff, and the public at reasonable rates. Student rentals are particularly cheap! Another thing OP does is host events for students to do. Events happening in the coming month are ski trips, dog sledding adventures, and ice climbing. I am thankful to have such a fun organization on campus to help me with venturing outdoors!

The new block of intramural registration is now open! This block we have six sports to choose from. Monday is co-ed volleyball advanced league. Tuesday there is co-ed basketball as well as doubles badminton. Wednesday is co-ed volleyball recreation league. And finally Thursday is for open indoor soccer as well as spikeball, which is the night I supervise. Intramural sports are a great chance to meet new people, make new friends, and stay active! 


Intramural Championships

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

This week has been championship week for all intramural sports on campus. Both volleyball leagues and basketball have champions. Tonight the soccer and tennis champions will be crowned. Winners not only get pride and bragging rights, but also an awesome intramural champions shirt! A MVP from each league is also picked and receives their own special shirt. With intramural sports ending this week, it’s almost time for the next block of sports to begin next semester which will be advanced and rec volleyball, co-ed basketball, open soccer, and spikeball. 


New Block of Intramural Sports Begin

Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

Block two of the school year of intramural sports began this past Monday with the advanced volleyball league. On Tuesday, co-ed basketball was played. Wednesdays are the night for the recreational volleyball league. The week finishes with soccer and tennis on Thursday nights. Intramurals are a great way to meet new people and to stay active, and it is all for free! I am a supervisor for soccer this block, and being apart of intramural sports has changed my college experience for the better. Consider joining a team at any point in your college career, you won’t regret it!
