Got the Munchies?

It’s so easy to grab a bag of potato chips and zone out in front of the computer screen.  But multi-tasking while snacking isn’t the best idea.  When your attention is diverted elsewhere, you’ve made it through half the bag before you know it!  In addition, snacks like chips and cookies contain plenty of empty calories.  Translation:  you’ll be hungry again twenty minutes later.  Here are some healthy (and tasty!) snacks to get you through a tough study session.

So, whether you’re absorbed in a textbook or just on Facebook, keep your mind sharp with one of these healthy treats to satisfy your craving.

Happy Snacking!

Summer Fun at the RAC!

The semester is coming to an end, so you may be starting to look for some fun summer activities. Look no further! CRI has plenty of activities for you to choose from this summer.

Test your abilities by taking on the Tri-Eagle Challenge during summer-term A or B. In order to complete the challenge, participants must cycle 100 miles, walk or run 26.2 miles, and swim 2500 yards. Complete the challenge and win a prize.

Looking for a more laid back activity with friends, sign up for intramurals this summer! There will be three to choose from: basketball (Registration: May 7-23), softball (Registration May 7-23), and sand volleyball (Registration: Jun 18- Jul 3). Intramurals are a great way to stay active and have some fun with friends over the summer.

Going to the pool is probably the most common summer activity. At the RAC, we have an indoor pool, whirlpool, and an outdoor pool with a whirlpool. Play basketball and volleyball in the pool, or lounge in a chair to soak up the sun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Needing a little more adventure in your life? Southern Adventures will be offering a couple trips this summer: Kayaking (Saturday, June 9) and Canoeing (Saturday, July 14). If these trips don’t appeal to you, then plan your own. Southern Adventures offers rental equipment for an affordable price to students. Students can rent camping supplies, water sporting gear, and bikes. Resource books, maps, and videos are free for students to use.

Have a great summer!
