WHAT IS KPESA?
(Kinesiology and Physical Education Student Association)
The kinesiology and physical education student association (KPESA) is made up of students who are either registered in our Bachelor of Kinesiology degree program or are taking KPE courses at UFV. The purpose of KPESA is to provide academic support as well as a social environment for KPE students. KPESA has been-- and will continue to be-- a strong student association on the UFV campus. We have held events such as Christmas cruises, curling bonspiels between faculty and students, several golf events as well as pub nights. We will continue to offer similar social events as a means of creating a strong sense of social connectedness within the KPE department. KPESA is also always open to welcoming other UFV students from other programs and departments to our social and academic events.
KPESA has been involved in active fund raising to raise money for students and families in need both at UFV and abroad. KPESA has been very successful in running the Banff Film Festival bake sale to raise funds. KPESA also grants a small scholarship to students who have demonstrated active engagement in campus life while maintaining good academic standing. KPESA additionally acts in a mentorship role to help students with their KPE studies. We have recently acquired a skeletal model and hope to find a space on campus which will act as a forum for study, mentorship and fellowship.

Kim Bennett - KPESA President
