LSU-UREC-GA-Adventures-Fall-2014

8 GAs, 1 Tiger

On the day originally known as “August 5th – the day we became this GA team,” there were plenty of firsts for our group of adventurers. As one of the new UREC Graduate Assistants, having made it through my first month both working for UREC and living in Baton Rouge, it was time for some official team building adventures with all the UREC GAs.

UREC Grads Say Goodbye

Another year has come and gone, and yet again it is time to say goodbye to some of our hardworking UREC staff. UREC appreciates our student staff and everything they do to make this a positive working environment for others. UREC is grateful for the time spent with each student worker and honored to send them off towards their goals in life after graduation.

Jekyll-Island

Smells Like Jekyll

Over Spring Break, I went on the UREC Deep Sea Fishing Trip to Jekyll Island and made so many memories! It was non-stop fun from fishing, to biking, to kayaking, to playing some pretty intense mini golf. Even though I was sleeping in a tent every night and eating tons of peanut butter sandwiches, I felt like I was living the life.

Well we have those, too. But there is definitely a lot more that meets the eye when it comes to powerlifting, and it’s definently not just for men.

You are walking through the gates of Equest Farm in New Orleans, ready for the first competition of the season. You stroll down the pathway with grass fields and a row of trees on either side. To your right, you see the barn, buzzing with the sound of horses being readied for the show. Finally you reach the ring, with horses already warming up.

A journey in the life of a survivor

In March of 2009 I became a breast cancer survivor! From the moment a person is diagnosed, they become a survivor. After surgery, weekly chemotherapy, and radiation treatments that finished on Christmas Eve of 2009, I truly believe I became a stronger woman. I had and continue to have tremendous support from family, friends, and the LSU community.
