Here at Fisher there are plenty of opportunities to get out and do things other than schoolwork and studying. I am a very active person and as such have taken advantage of the many physical activity programs that are available at Ohio State.
- Intramural Football – Fisher put together a co-ed flag football team that was comprised of people from a variety of programs. It allowed me and a few of the other SMFs to meet some of the individuals in the other Fisher programs. Football was a good chance to get out on the weekends and get some physical activity while in a fun, competitive environment.
- Club Swimming – I was an NCAA Swimmer in undergrad at the University of South Carolina so I am always looking for ways to continue to stay in shape and Club Swimming is one of the best opportunities that I have found. We practice a few times a week and then swim a few meets a semester against other colleges in the area and it is a great chance to not only do a little training but also get up and race every few weeks.
- Recreation Facilities – Ohio State offers some of the best on-campus recreation facilities in the country with the RPAC, Jesse Owens North, and Jesse Owens South all within a few minute walk of Fisher. The RPAC is the flagship of the rec department and is one of the largest collegiate rec centers in the country. They offer over a dozen basketball courts, a massive weight room, hundreds of pieces of cardio equipment, an indoor track, as well as one of the nicest aquatic facilities in the country. It is very convenient to Fisher and is just a 5 minute walk into campus and is a great place to grab a quick workout in between classes or to break up a long study period.
