Hey GPRC, did you catch some familiar faces playing spikeball in the cafeteria yesterday?
GPRC Student Wellness representatives, SAGPRCrepresentatives and even some GPRC Wolves coaches as well as a couple more made in appearance yesterday playing a couple fun rounds of spikeball near the SA entrance on our GPRC Grande Prairie campus.
GPRC Student Wellness organized the activity and sees the significance in getting out and interacting with students to help spread awareness of Campus Activities, GPRC’s Campus Recreation Intramural Sports Leagues, and remind students of the many free opportunities they receive simply by being students at GPRC.
If you missed yesterday’s activities, don’t worry, many more chances to play Spikeball and other recreation activities will be provided to students throughout the rest of the semester!
