Of Soccer and Kinesiology

The kinesiology degree program at Texas Woman’s University prepares undergraduate students to pursue careers in exercise science, physical education, and occupational and physical therapy. With an excellent faculty and staff, the Kinesiology Department challenges its students to reach their potential and provides the support and assistance necessary for students to succeed.

One of the excellent support and social opportunities for kinesiology majors at TWU is the Kinesiology Club. The club’s officers, composed of fellow TWU kinesiology students, organize community service projects, fundraisers and fellowship events. Annual events include an October 31st Halloween Party, midterm kinesiology breakfasts and monthly meetings. Club members are also provided invaluable opportunities to network with their peers. The fee to join the club is only $30 for one’s entire time as a student at TWU.  This includes a T-shirt every school year!

The Kinesiology Club is supportive of the TWU athletic teams. One of the upcoming sports events co-sponsored by the Kinesiology Club is TWU Soccer Spirit Day on Friday, September 28th. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. on the TWU soccer field and will feature a variety of exciting opportunities for all TWU students! The first 150 fans will receive a free “Whip the Wildcats” T-shirt. Two $500 University Housing scholarships will also be given away, to be applied to the fortunate winners’ spring 2013 housing bill! Free maroon and white pom-poms, ice cream sandwiches, face painting, door prizes and contests will also be involved! Everyone is encouraged to attend in support of the TWU soccer team.

Editor's Note: Valuable library resources in the field of kinesiology (including news, research guidance, recommended reading and much more) are available in the Kinesiology Subject Guide, reachable via the TWU Libraries homepage under Research/Subject Guides/Kinesiology.  Kinesiology Subject Librarian Greg Hardin is available for questions, research consultations and class instruction sessions.  Reach Greg at or 940-898-3712.
