Spring Semester 2006
Required Program services the
who request to have their physical education activities limited or waived
because of a medical condition should contact Professor Torrey, chair
of Physical Education. In some situations, students may require an evaluation
by a clinician at health Services at
The grading in all physical education courses is Pass/Fail. Students who fulfill the attendance and participation requirement receive a pass. Those who miss more than the permissible number of classes and who do not drop the course by the official drop deadline (date to be announced) receive an unofficial withdrawal (UW). Students who anticipate attendance problems should contact their instructors or the department representative.
The Required Program offers a variety of activities in the areas of aquatics, dance, fitness, martial arts, individual and dual “lifetime” sports, team sports, and outdoor education. It is our goal that the experiences provided by these activites will contribute to the development of an active, healthy lifestyle.
majority of the activities are offered in ten time preferences. However,
there are early morning conditioning activities, Friday-only classes
at Baker Field, and special courses that utilize off-campus facilities
during weekends and vacation periods. A description of the activities
and a listing of the course offerings for the Spring Semester are available
below. Unless otherwise indicated, the activities are scheduled on a
quarterly basis with each quarter lasting approximately seven weeks.
At midterm the student selects another activity for the remainder of
the term, although in many cases the student has the opportunity to
continue the same activity. Students may register for only one section
of physical education each term.
Registration: College and Engineering students can select Physical Education courses on-line. Barnard and General Studies students can register for Physical Education courses Thursday, January 19 and Friday, January 20 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at 205 Kent Hall for General Studies Students and at the Physical Education Office for Barnard Students (336 Dodge Fitness Center, 854-3439). As of January 23, students must receive approval from the instructor to register for the course.
First Day of Classes: Although most classes begin on Tuesday, January 17, Physical Education Classes start on Monday, January 23, Tuesday, January 24 and Friday, January 27. Unless indicated otherwise, all students who have registered for Physical Education should report to the Levien Gymnasium for their first scheduled class. Following the orientation lecture by Professor Torrey, students will be given attendance credit and will also have the option of acquiring a daily lock/towel service for a $34 fee ($20 will be refunded at the end of the semester for students who pass the course). Students who need to take the swimming test will then proceed to the Uris Pool - bring swimming suits. Students registered for beginner swimming are not required to take the test.
Students who are participating on an intercollegiate team should register for the appropriate team section of Physical Education C1005—Intercollegiate Athletics. Athletes who register correctly and participate on a team receive a Pass; those who drop off a team in mid-term and still want academic credit must notify the Physical Education Office and be placed in an activity to complete the attendance requirement. Otherwise, the student must officially drop Intercollegiate Athletics or he or she will receive UW for a grade.
