Student Organizations and Clubs HES Club
The HES Club is the primary student involvement group in the Department of Health and Exercise Science.
Our Goals are:
- To provide students with opportunities for academic, professional/career, and personal exploration and advancement. This is accomplished by bringing in professionals working in a variety of health and exercise science related careers to speak as well as resources from across campus (Financial Aid, International Programs/Study Abroad, the Career Center, Health Professions Advisers, etc.).
- To provide opportunities for community service by partnering with local organizations around Fort Collins or Northern Colorado, as well as participating in service events on campus. Club members have the chance to decide which organization(s) they serve each year.
- To provide a sense of community within the Department of Health and Exercise Science. The HES Club is a chance to meet and interact with fellow students of various ages and interests. Along with connecting with faculty in the department, we frequently organize fun events such as hikes, intramural sports teams, etc.
Student Living Health and Exercise Science Residential Learning Community
In the Health & Exercise Science (HES) Residential Learning Community (RLC), you will live with other students who are taking the same courses, have similar career goals, and with students that are often vested in living active and healthy lifestyles. Living in the HES Residential Learning Community will allow for residents to connect with each other not only academically but socially as well through engaging Residence Life programming. The HES Residential Learning Community is conveniently located in Corbett Hall, across the street from Moby B Complex where students have access to a computer lab, where major courses are offered, and where the Department of Health & Exercise Science is located.
In the fall, students in the community will take HES145 – Health & Wellness together as a cluster. In the spring, students will take HES207 – Anatomical Kinesiology or HES202 Introduction to Exercise Physiology as a cluster.
The HES Residential Learning Community is open to any first-year students who are declared as Health & Exercise Science Majors at Colorado State University. To apply for the HES Residential Learning Community, students must complete an application through the Learning Community site.

- COVID impacts and unknowns may modify designated housing for Learning Communities as University Housing continues to follow the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments. If we are unable to assign you to the Learning Community’s designated hall, you will still be able to participate in the community, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall.
Cross-Discipline Organizations Health Professions Student Associations
There are several student organizations at CSU which you can join if you are interested in the health professions and additional fields related to health. More information on student organizations.
