The College of St. Scholastica has a long and proud history of being a leader in providing recreational and fitness programming for its students. Long before it became popular at most colleges, St. Scholastica gave a voice to educationg women in the virtues of recreation, wellness, and fitness.
That voice was Gladys Swanson, otherwise revered by her students as "Swanny". Mrs. Swanson was the Physical Educacation Director from 1931-the early 1970s. Today, Campus Rec's motto is "Your Home for Recreation, Sport, and Spirit!" We owe this long standing commitment of recreation and experiential learnign to the foresight of the Benedictine Sisters and to the personal commitment of Gladys "Swanny" Swanson.

Don't miss out on the 7th Annual Swanny on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 at 4:15 PM. We've got two great races to suit everyone! The 2k Trail Walk takes you along our closest campus trails in a leisurely stroll through the beautiful call colors. The 5k Trail Run is a bit more competitive and challenging as you venture out further into our awesome campus trail system. Participants may register online for the 2k Walk or the 5k Run or in the Student Union during the week of the race. There will also be last minute registration in front of the BWC 1 hour prior to the race start. The first 300 finishers receive a Swanny dry-fit t-shirt (women's cut available, too)! Prize drawings will take place after the races, & you must be present to win.
The races starting and finishing lines will be in Groves Parking Lot 12.
