This weeks #StaffSpotlightSunday recipient goes to one of our newer lifeguards, Sekhar! He’s been a lifeguard for Recreation Services for 3 months now.
“This is a job [that] allows you to stay fit while working[,] besides that it’s a life skill that comes in handy for the rest of my life,” Sekhar said. He also said that he likes his job so much because he gets to meet new people and expand his social circle.
Sekhar is an international graduate student from India with a Computer Science Major.
Some cool facts about him are that he can drive a stick shift, and he got his Mass driver’s license on his first try! He also tasted snow for the very first time while attending FSU!
Whether you see him around campus or in the pool, make sure to say hello! #fsurec #fsurecreationservices #fsuswim

This weeks #StaffSpotlightSunday recipient goes to one of our intramural sports referees, Michael! He’s doubled as both a referee and a building attendant this semester.
“I really have always had a deep rooted passion for physical well being and athletics,” Michael said. That passion definitely shines through 100% when he’s working; he’s always ready to lend a helping hand.
Fittingly, Michael is a GCE student with a Movement and Sports Studies major. Whether you see him on the field or behind the desk, make sure to say hello! #fsurec #fsuim #fsurecreationservices

This weeks #StaffSpotlightSunday recipient goes to one of our Intramural Supervisors, Jess! She’s been a supervisor for The Recreation Center for about a year now. She had been interested in the job because she had been a referee before, loved it, and saw this job as a great opportunity. Jess says that, “The atmosphere is always fun and the teamwork makes it worth the time.”
She’s a junior with an Exercise & Sports Science major. An interesting fact is that she plays for the women’s lacrosse team here at Fitchburg State! If you see her on the field, or in her red intramural t-shirt, make sure to say hello! #fsurec #fsurecreationservices #fsuim

What's the most transformative thing that you can do for your brain today? Exercise! says neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki.
