The team at Northern Mariana Islands College Sport is lead by FISU FLVA Student Ambassador Angela Bernal and aims to spread the word about sport and activity amongst students at the Northern Marianas College.
Northern Mariana Islands is a territory in the north/west of the Pacific Ocean. It is known for its beautiful beaches, world war II history and its wonderful people.
There are over 1,000 College students on the islands with sport and activity, a key focus of student life. Recently, NMI College Sports has been instrumental in providing students with the chance to participate in sport and activity.
At the start of the 2021 academic year (Fall semester), students attend the First Day Fest where they could talk to student sport leaders about sport and college life as well as win prizes by taking part in the sport activities of Hole in One and Disc Dunk. Due to its popularity, the sport booth will no doubt become a feature at future First Day Fest events.
NMI College Sports also held a successful day of celebrations for International Day of University Sport (held annually on 20 September). With the assistance of local sport federations, students celebrated with social sport competitions in Volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee as well as throwing and football juggling competitions. With plenty of sport and prizes to be won, the day was a great success.
When asked why it was important to celebrate International Day of University Sport, Miss Bernal outlined; “Celebrating International Day of University Sport is a way we can not only promote the physical and mental health benefits of sport and activity, it is also a way we can connect with other Colleges and universities from across the world as we unite as one to celebrate university sport on the 20th of September every year”.
