The Exercise Science Club (EESC) is a student organization instated/established in 2009 by undergraduates who plan on pursuing careers in Exercise Science related fields. The goal of the club is to provide resources and opportunities that introduce students to human sciences and professional organizations. In addition, the club seeks to help its members become the most qualified applicants for careers, graduate, and medical programs; Encourage community involvement and to present members with opportunities to serve by volunteering within the community.

The EESC has had the honor to raise over $6000 for ALS in the Spring of 2010. We assisted in the creation of “Brad’s 5K Run” that was a great community event and fun to organize.
