Physical Activity, Leisure, and Safety

T. Fenwick Faulkner, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator

The physical activity, leisure, and safety (PALS) program provides diverse, skill-oriented physical activities as part of a general education program promoting the physiological development of students, improving their motor fitness and skills, and enabling them to maintain a suitable recreation program of their choice during and after college. A maximum of 6 credits in PALS courses, taken as open (free) electives, may be counted toward graduation. Each school or department determines the number that may be counted toward graduation. PALS courses are offered on a pass/fail basis only.

Activity Course Registration Information

Students must register online for activity courses. In order to do so, students must select the appropriate block: Block 1 (first 7 weeks of the semester) or Block 2 (last 7 weeks of the semester). There is the risk of being automatically dropped from the course if you do not attend the first class meeting. The only exception to this rule will be with prior notice of the absence. A student who is dropped for non-attendance may apply to be added at the next class meeting. (Note: The instructor is not obligated to drop a student; students who decide not to take the course must follow the regular drop procedures.)

All persons who participate in activity courses must have a health clearance on file in the College health center and must sign a "Responsibility of Student in Activity Courses" form at the first class meeting.

Intercollegiate Athletic Course Registration Information

Students must register online for intercollegiate athletic course credit. Students who do not make the team or who discontinue participation for any reason must drop or withdraw from the course online. Intercollegiate athletic courses are offered on a pass/fail basis only. Credit is granted either in the fall or the spring for any given sport. No late requests for credit will be honored. In the off-season, students may reserve practice time in their schedule from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. by using course number 664-00100-01. For credit (0.5 per session), students must use the course number indicated below for the appropriate semester.
