Fall 2021

Save a Lyfe

Lyfe kicked off the 2021-22 academic year with the first event focusing on Mental Health. Lyfe members put together an evening that included food paired along a few activities that can be used to improve mental fitness. The student-athletes started off with a short clip discussing mental health and how there are still challenges that people of color face when it comes to utilizing resources to help with mental health. Following the video campus ambassadors came to discuss how art therapy and yoga can be used to help with mental health. The student-athletes ended the night by doing art and a brief yoga session.

LYFE Community Service

LYFE decided to give back to the community by visiting Big Bend Homeless Coalition. Our student-athletes and staff were able to donate basketball, footballs, and volleyballs to the kids of Big Bend. The LYFE team spent the afternoon playing games with the kids. It was a great opportunity to give the youth of Big Bend memories that they will not forget and also give our LYFE team memories that also will not be forgotten.

Best Night of My Lyfe

LYFE hosted Best Night of my Lyfe before finals week. It is an event open to all student-athletes that allows them to have some fun before final exams. There was a DJ, bounce houses, games, food, and a photo booth. It was a great time and chance for our student-athletes to enjoy themselves at the end of the semester.
