Student Organizations

Don’t forget to nurture your life beyond the classroom. Student organizations help you make friends and get involved with your campus and your community. Some organizations also give you the opportunity to network with other students throughout the country who share your career goals. Becoming active in campus life enriches your college experience and helps you develop leadership skills and self-confidence.

The Health and Human Performance department has four organizations that we sponsor for the benefit of students like you.

Phi Epsilon Kappa-Delta Theta Chapter
The Delta Theta chapter of the Phi Epsilon Kappa national honor society recognizes FHSU students pursuing careers in physical education, health, recreation, dance, human performance, exercise science, sports medicine and sports management. Through Phi Epsilon Kappa you will have the opportunity to gain leadership skills through campus, community, and professional activities. Contact Dr. Duane Shepherd to get involved.

Athletic Training Club
The Athletic Training Club forms a band of fellowship among athletic training students. This organization aims to motivate current and potential students to strive for excellence in their program of study and future career. Members conduct fundraisers to assist their efforts to educate the student body about athletic training, its components, and the responsibilities of the profession. For more information, contact the Athletic Training Club sponsor, Brady Ternes.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes
The Fellowship of Christian athletes presents an opportunity for students to combine their faith with their interest in athletics. This organization sponsors Fields of Faith, a national annual event which presents the opportunity for FHSU students to worship and serve God in partnership with the Hays community. All students interested in Christianity are welcome, regardless of their participation in FHSU athletics. To get involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, contact Dr. Jeff Burnett.

Shooting Sports Club
Our Shooting Sports club welcomes students and faculty from any major who express an interest in shooting sports as a recreational or a competitive activity. The club promotes responsible use and ownership of firearms while attempting to further a spirit of community service. Our members have received awards on a national level and even appeared on ESPN-U. Contact Dr. Duane Shepherd for more information or visit the Shooting Sports Web site .

HHP majors often participate in Intramurals, a campus-wide organization that provides many physical and social activities designed to meet the needs of the FHSU community. In addition to paid positions, you can gain leadership experience by serving as a part of Intramural Council or being an officer in Intramural club. For more information, see the FHSU Intramurals Web site.

Beyond Cunningham Hall, HHP majors can become a part of many campus-wide organizations, like Tigers in Service or the Student Government Association. For more information about the organizations on the FHSU campus, contact Fort Hays State University’s Center for Student Involvement.
