Undergraduate Programs

PERCS

The Physical Education and Recreation Council of Students (PERCS) 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, PERCS 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. PERCS 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 Physical Education and Recreation in their quest for success and achievement. 

If you wish to get involved an email will be sent to each new student about a month before school begins. After receiving this email (on your UAlberta account) you can fallow the instructions to a link that will allow you to sign up, as well as receive more information about the camp itself.

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

Upcoming Events and Activities

 

Rookie Camp

Rookie Camp has been a long-standing tradition in our faculty and 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 on Pigeon Lake. Each year over a hundred new PER students get to spend the weekend together playing sports, creating skits, and dancing the Saturday night away. 

Rookie Camp is PERCS 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.

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 PERCS social media pages, and email accounts. Tickets are available for purchase in the PERCS 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.
