This Weeks Guide to Fun, Fitness and Great Rec Sports Events

Hey Gaels! My name is Jacqueline. As a junior here at SMC, I can understand the need we all have to keep active in fun ways outside of our studies. Ever since I can remember, I've been outside participating in sports, which has become incorporated into my college life as well. As a Kinesiology major, I know the basics of how to keep a fit and healthy lifestyle, and as someone who loves to be social I am always looking for a way to incorporate as many people into this fun lifestyle! Since simply going to the gym can start to get boring, I'm here to help you all brainstorm different ways to be active on campus and have a great time while you're doing it. With my Rec Sports Guide to a Fit and Fun College Experience, I can help you blow off some steam from all the stressors of college life and stay healthy and fit throughout the year. Check out my blog weekly for all the new opportunities our school gives us, and try to spot me at the events. Stick with me; I'll take you places!


Sending out great ideas and tips to Saint Mary's for a fun and fit college experience, every week.


The chilly winter weather has finally hit! No more laying around outside in the warm air; blankets, hot cocoa, and heaters have now taken over. As we enter the middle of November and find our way closer to the holidays, we need to find ways to keep our bodies warm! Instead of going out and buying new blankets and sweaters, we should all be taking the cheap route and getting in some exercise with Rec Sports! This is certainly what the girls’ club soccer team did yesterday. Read more...


November is finally here! This means a change in the leaves from green, to yellow, to red, a cool down in the weather, autumn scents, and Thanksgiving of course! In only a few short weeks we will be on our Thanksgiving break, some time off which I am sure most of us need. When it comes to Thanksgiving one thing is on all our minds- FOOD. From the turkey, to the mashed potatoes, to the pumpkin pie, I know we will all be spending time around the table with our families while eating everything in sight. In order to earn these inevitable food comas, starting Rec Sports activities this week is necessary! Come check out everything going on this week to earn your double helping of pie in a few weeks!

Hopefully everyone at SMC had a safe and fun Halloween weekend! I’m sure everyone remembered to watch the various sports being played on campus, such as the Lacrosse game against Santa Clara , as well as the boys’ Baseball Halloween costume game. With all the Halloween candy we consumed this weekend, I’m sure along with other things, it’s time to burn it all off in a healthy way! Since many of us still have costumes to fit into this Wednesday to celebrate we should take advantage of everything Rec Sports has to offer us this week! I know I for one will need to hit up one of the fitness classes after all those candy bars… Read more...


As it turns out, this hot weather seems to have been rather short lived. With all this cold weather and rain, I know I have to fight the urge to curl up with a blanket and watch movies all day. Instead, I’m going to try to get active this week and make the best of my time! While it may not be summer weather anymore, any weather is good weather for activities. Read more...


With all our studying hours finished and essays written, it is time for everyone to relax for this four day weekend of mid term break. With the beautiful weather Mother Nature has awarded us with this late in the year, everybody should be outside soaking up the sun and getting active. Physical activity can offer students one of the best releases from the stresses of school, so it’s time we take advantage of that with all this free time! Whether you find yourself on your way back home or here on campus, there are always options of how to get active! Read more...
