Student Organizations

Student organizations in Kinesiology and Health Studies are an integral part of professional education. These groups provide opportunities for students to develop leadership skills which they can use after graduation, and a means of gaining knowledge beyond the classroom through meetings and conferences.

 

Student Athletic Trainers Association (SATA)

The Purpose Statement of SATA is to expand the overall scope of our educational experience by means of promoting educational activities, that we might establish closer contact with those who are involved in our future profession.  We strive to be very active in the community as well as within our profession. We participate in many community and philanthropic activities.  SATA is open to those who are or may be interested in applying to the Athletic Training Program.  (Joining SATA does not ensure acceptance into the ATP). Incoming students will have a membership fee of $25 in the Fall (covers both fall and spring) or if they join in Spring, the fee would be $20 (only Spring).  Meetings will typically be held once a month on Tuesday or Thursday at 7:30 am
