Swimming, Swimming in Brock’s Swimming Pool…

When days are hot, when days are cold
In Brock’s swimming pool.
Breast stroke, side stroke,
Fancy diving too.
Oh, don’t you wish you never had anything else to do but…


The Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre


The Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre at Brock University is the largest swimming facility in the Niagara Region with its 50m Olympic size pool and it opened TODAY for the 2013-2014 year and  just in time to work off all the Thanksgiving food you scarfed down this weekend!

That means AquaFit has started! Though most classes through Recreation Services are an additional student friendly prices, Aquafit is FREE! I am so excited to start doing it again because it helps improve your cardiovascular health, flexibility, muscular strength and toning and let me tell you…I ate WAYY to much food over Thanksgiving weekend!

That’s not all the exciting things coming up for Recreation Services! Try It Days will be in full swing from October 23rd to 25th where you can try the Extreme Fit, Challenger and InsaneFit classes for FREE. You can also join one of the MANY classes they offer to de-stress and say NO to that freshman 15! Click HERE to explore all the Fitness classes that we offer at Brock University…there’s even a new one called Bro’ga!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. -Jim Ryan


About Meghan

Hello! My name is Meghan and I am attending Brock University in my fourth year of the Concurrent Education BA/BEd I/S program with a major in Drama and second teachable in English. During my first year at Brock I was able to be part of Brock Musical Theatre’s production of RENT. This experience led me out of my shell right from the beginning of my first year, and allowed me to grow into the Brock community. I was able to see how important it is to branch out and get involved which is why the last 2 years I was a Residence Don and now this year I am a Head Resident in order to ensure that our incoming first years get the best experience possible at Brock! A piece of advice: When you choose a school, you are going there for your academics, BUT, your social and extra-curricular life are just as important in order to be a well-rounded student. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t let the feeling of "only being in first year" or "having too much work to do" stop you from getting involved because this is the time to do it. This is the time to use 'both sides of the brain' in order to be that well-rounded person. When you find something you love, something that brings out the best in you, don’t find excuses to not do it. Let it be your outlet. Let it the thing you go to or do when you’re feeling overwhelmed because in the long run, it will keep you happy, confident and sane!
