The Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation Student Society (KSRSS) is group of student representatives that organizes social, academic and charitable events with the goal of improving student life and community development within our faculty and community.

Through dedication, hard work, and enthusiasm, KSRSS will be recognized University wide as one of the most cohesive and outstanding student groups on campus based on the strong leadership of the members, and the successful social, physical, academic, and charitable events held by this group. KSRSS will create a sense of pride among the Faculty and respect that echoes campus wide through their continual commitment to enriching the student experience and inspiring all members of the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation in their quest for success and achievement.

We encourage all students to come into the KSRSS Office (Van Vliet 2-335) and say hi, gather info about upcoming events, or just hang out!

KSR Camp 

KSR Camp has been a long-standing tradition in our faculty, with KSR CAMP 2019 being the 50th Anniversary of our Faculty camp! It is a big contributor to the feeling of community that exists within the halls of our great faculty.

The camp takes place on the 2nd weekend of the academic calendar in fall semester, and is held at Camp Bar V-Nok on Pigeon Lake. Each year over a hundred new KSR students get to spend the weekend together playing sports, creating skits, and dancing the Saturday night away. You can also look forward to presentations and appearances from Faculty Executives, supporting the enrichment of your learning experience!

KSR Camp is KSRSS biggest undertaking, meaning that we spend countless hours designing the weekend to be the best that it can be, with the goal of each student leaving with the feeling of belonging to a new and exciting family within their faculty.

Ski, Snowboard, and No-Board Trip

ski trip

Calling all mountain lovers! KSRSS Ski, Snowboard and No-Board Trip is hosted annually by the KSRSS Council and provides an opportunity to shred the mountains with fellow KSR students. Two busloads of KSR students head off to the mountains in January for a weekend of meeting people, great views and great snow. If you are no interested in taking to the slopes of skis or a board, you are welcome to still join.

 

Convocation

Each year the Grad Representatives on our student council is responsible for working with the faculty to plan and organize the reception after the graduate's convocation. It is held at the Faculty Club on campus just south of Stadium Parkade. It's a magical night spent with your colleagues and full of great food, inspirational speeches, and of course, an awesome DJ'd dance.
The event will be advertised through all KSRSS social media pages, and email accounts. Tickets are available for purchase in the KSRSS office.

A new tradition for the Faculty is having grad meet before or after Convocation at the Alberta Bear for a class picture. Be sure to check your UAlberta email for information regarding convocation activities, both student and faculty driven.
