Be Active, Be Inspired
The Athletic Union proudly announce The Be-Active Be-Inspired Campaign. Inviting all students to take part in a variety of one off events, tournaments, taster sessions and health and well-being classes that run throughout the year. The aim is to encourage and engage all students to take part in physical activity and to enjoy being active whilst at University.
The University of Exeter are extremely proud of its levels of sporting engagement within the student population as a whole, with sports forming an integral part of Exeter experience. With this in mind The Be-Active Be-Inspired campaign from the University of Exeter’s Athletic Union launched last term. The campaign caters to students of all abilities, with specific aim to engage students who are currently inactive by offering inspiring and sociable one-off events, tournaments, outdoor activities, fitness and health classes and sport taster sessions.
The campaign runs throughout the year giving students a number of opportunities to take part in a variety of events to suit all. Look out for the Be-Active Be-Inspired posters around campus and halls with individual flyers advertising the next big event! Events are either free of charge or include a small entrance fee for team tournaments.
