A Day in the Life of a Club Sports Athlete

>>Hey, Bobcat Nation. Have you
ever wondered what it’s like to be a part of Quinnipiac
University’s club sports program? Let’s find out right now. (music) I’m Olamide, I’m a junior
business management advertising double major from Westchester,
New York, and this is my day in the life. (music) I am on the QU Club Tennis
team and what club sports is, it’s basically for students who still
want to compete in that team setting, and they still wanna
continue the sport they love in high school. So, you try out for a
club team. It’s a step up from intramurals and a step down from
D1 team. It still requires a lot of time commitment because you
have to go to practices, you have to go to games, go to
matches. You really have to balance your day whilst being in
a club sports and being also involved. I was given the
opportunity to start the club team here at Quinnipiac, which is
a great honor because I got to meet great and amazing people
that also love to play the sport that I love to do. So, I’m going to go and meet
Liam, who’s on my tennis team. And we’re gonna go down to a
peer catalyst meeting. (music) A peer catalyst is someone who
helps facilitates the class. We help out with a discussion that’s
in the class, and me and Liam are peer catalysts for FYS. And FYS is
just an introductory class for first year students to teach them
about college and how to become better writers and better
thinkers overall. So, that helps them throughout their whole
college experience. (music)>>Do your midsemester self assessments. It’s basically the same thing
that we did at he beginning of the semester.>>So, we just got to the cafe.
We’re gonna get some food. I’m going to my favorite station,
Breakfast all Day because James makes the best french toast.This
is James. He makes the best breakfast.>>Some bananas.
>>Oh, look how good looks.>>Breakfast for champs. So, I just finished breakfast.
Gonna be off on our way to class. I’m gonna go to my FYS class that
I’m a peer catalyst for. So, let’s go. This is my class. This
is my professor her name’s, Professor D’Lisa McKee. Can you
tell us, like, your favorite part about teaching FYS.>>Uh, my favorite…
>>Seeing Jake is>>Is seeing Jake. My second favorite
part about FYS is that we get to go off script, and kind of, you
know do fun things and approach topics from different angles. Write a
bunch. Just like really quickly on each blank. Give me, like, a very
brief answer. Just got out of my FYS class, now I’m gonna go to
project management.>>Somebody?
>>Five.>>Late start.
>>Five.>>Nine. (music) So, I just got out of project management class. We
learned about networking diagrams and we did a bunch of Citrix,
which was a blast. I’m going to go to the cafe now to grab some
food. (music) Hey everyone. So, I got a healthy salad for lunch, so we
got some tomatoes, mushrooms, lettuce, baby corn, tofu.
>>Some cucumbers. Cucumbers! There we go Irsa. Look at that. Lunch for
champs. Rock on. I’ve just finished eating lunch. So, I’m
gonna head to the library to get some work done. Now I’m going to
my 3:30 media class.>>In the documentary, you will see a
number of Vietnam veterans, the person who, the director, producer of this
movie…>>So, I just got out of class. I’m going to practice right
now. We practice on the tennis courts on main campus. Practice
is four times a week. And then we have matches on Saturday and
Sunday. And the practices last from about an hour, to an hour
and a half each day.We usually do some warm ups. After warm ups, we
have, like, stretching and all that stuff. And then we do some
volleys, we do some serves, and then we usually play like a match
or so. (music) So, right now, I am getting dinner with my teammates. (music) So, the day’s finally over. Anyone that wants to join club sports, I
highly recommend doing it because it’s a great way to still get to
do the sport that you love to do. Even if you don’t want to get
involved in a club sport here at Quinnipiac, there are also great
clubs and organizations you can be a part of here. So, I
definitely recommend getting yourself involved and really
emerging yourself into the great Quinnipiac community. Thanks for

Go Bobcats.
