Swim, Ski, & Golf this Winter!

By: Robyn

Despite the relatively mild winter we have had this year, there is no shortage of winter fun activities to keep the snow-loving Simon students ready for their next adventure. Beyond the academic classroom, our students are heavily involved in the many clubs and social activities available throughout the year. When persuing the variety of b-schools, make sure to take into account everything beyond your academic curriculum. Developing camaraderie with classmates will enhance any experience and knowing the community oriented environment of Simon, you are definitely likely to benefit from this. Depending on your interests, there are always a variety of clubs and events that one can choose to participate in. Check out a few of the following sponsored through the Simon School this winter:

1) Polar Plunge: Sponsored by the Winter Sports Club, this annual event supports the Special Olympics. A few of our brave students literally take the ‘plunge’ into the chilly waters of Lake Ontario, located near Rochester, NY. Temperatures in the lake usually run around 45 degrees Fahrenheit this time of year. Anyone up for a game of Marco Polo? Brrrrr!

2) Hunt Hollow Ski Trip: Midterms have just concluded for Simon students, and this is a great way to take a break from classes to spend a Saturday with friends and classmates on the slopes. With transportation, food, and beverages provided by the Winter Sports Club and Student Services, what more fun could you ask for? For those lacking the necessary ski skills (like me), not to worry, lessons are available, too – the perfect way for a new skier to learn.

3) Winter Golf Outing: Yes, you can golf in the winter in Rochester! The Simon Golf Club is organizing a day to visit OptiGolf, an indoor golf simulator that makes you feel like you are right on the course. A ‘must’ event for any golfer who is looking to keep their skills consistent during the winter. Even for the non-golfer, learn how to improve so that every shot you take on the real course isn’t a bogey.
