Opportunities in and out of the classroom
Health and Human Performance department students are active as coaches in the schools and city recreation department, and as aides in physical therapy at the local hospital and clinic. In addition, community service projects such as the Halloween Fun Night in David Dorm give our students an opportunity to share their talents with Seward residents.
Students in the Health and Human Performance program also actively participate in campus events by coordinating intramural and recreation activities, and coordinating and leading faculty and staff fun and fitness nights and dance nights.
Health and Human Performance Club
Promoting healthy activity
HHP Club is an organization that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle for the campus and community. Membership provides many opportunities for fellowship with others interested in the areas of health and human performance and promotes future leadership in planning and supervising of physical education and health programs. Recent community activities include sponsoring "Jump Rope for Heart," and a children's Fun House.
Anyone interested or enrolled in the field of health and human performance education is welcome to join.
Making its historic beginning in 1927, Men’s C-Club is the oldest remaining club on campus. This group of student athletes is focused on serving Concordia athletics, the student body, the community and surrounding Lutheran Schools. To join Men’s C-Club one must finish one season of a varsity sport at Concordia and complete recruitment week.
Focused on what matters most
Athletics lends itself naturally to teamwork and cooperation, but many Concordia University athletes find that they have a common bond even more important than the teams they join and the sports they play. Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an interdenominational Christian organization based on sports that bring together not only athletically oriented fellow believers on Concordia’s campus, but unites athletes who share the faith all over the world.
Concordia’s FCA Huddle works to foster community among Christian athletes both on and off the Concordia campus, keeping in mind that their abilities are from God and their victories are his. In addition to holding regular campus meetings that feature devotions and fellowship, FCA at Concordia works with other high school and college chapters of FCA. Members serve as counselors at FCA weekend retreats and summer camps that encourage young athletes to stay focused on Christ as they develop their skills.
FCA meetings are held every Sunday at 8 p.m., and anyone interested in athletics is welcome to attend. FCA brings in special speakers to discuss issues relevant to athletics and faith every semester. A leadership team, rather than an individual leader, directs FCA’s activities and emphasizes the importance of cooperation in both athletics and Christian servanthood.
