Newly admitted freshmen students who have declared Sports Science and Fitness Management (SSFM) as their     degree program are eligible to participate in the HPLS Facilitating Interpersonal Transformation (F.I.T.) Living    Learning Community.  The purpose of the F.I.T. LLC is to provide structured academic, social and professional     experiences for first and second year SSFM students as a means for them to examine exercise and/or related disciplines leadership models, develop a practical understanding of sport organizational administrative functioning and to participate in collaboratively planned leisure activities.  Moreover, the F.I.T. LLC will afford SSFM first and second year students the opportunity to become familiarized with the University’s values, while fostering an environment for   personal development.


Within the department of HPLS, both undergraduate and graduate students are afforded the opportunity to obtain membership in Phi Epsilon Kappa Honor Society, given that they meet the following requirements: 1) Must be       enrolled at North Carolina A&T State University as a full-time student; 2) Must be declared as a sports science      fitness management major for at least one academic semester; and 3) Must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale at North Carolina A&T State University. Some of the  advantages of membership in PEK are: 1) Provides unique opportunities to work with peers; 2) Offers socio-cultural opportunities; 3) Fosters lasting friendships and fraternal spirit; 4) Provides opportunities for  professional growth and leadership development;   5) Develops a feeling of mutual interest and responsibility, both personally and professionally; and 6) Helps to  instill a healthy professional spirit among the members and other students in the department and/or school. With   regard to the latter, the PEK Honor  Society within the Department of HPLS developed and implemented a program entitled: Students Promoting Physical Activity (Exercise is Medicine), Healthy Eating, Exemplary Grades, and      Community Engagement (SPHEC) to help fight against the obesity epidemic (through increased physical  activity and a healthy diet) to promote academic success and community engagement.
