Social @ SAU

Hey Muleriders! I hope everyone is having a great semester so far! Do you ever find yourself not knowing what to do with your free time? If so, then this article is for you! I am going to showcase a few of the fun things available to us on campus.

Mulerider Activity Center

The Mulerider Activity Center, commonly known as the MAC, is one of my favorite places at SAU. There is always something to do at the MAC! The MAC offers quality workout equipment, various exercise and fitness classes, basketball courts, and intramural sports.

To take a virtual tour of the MAC, view a complete list of all of the classes they offer, and hours of operation click here.

Aquatic Center

If you like water-related activities, then the Aquatic Center is the place for you! You can participate in one of the exercise classes, or go and swim around! The pool is also heated, so you don’t have to worry about cold water during the winter months.

The Aquatic Center offers programs and services to help promote and bring positive health change.

You can find more information about the Aquatic Center and hours of operation here.

Disc Golf Course

Disc Golf has become an increasingly popular activity among students at SAU. We have an 18-hole disc golf course here on campus. The course was designed back in 2017 and has provided fun for disc golfers ever since. The start of the course begins across from the Greek Theater. This is a great way for you and your friends to get outside for a fun way to exercise. 

Discs are available for checkout at the Mulerider Activity Center. All you need is your student ID.


Perhaps one of the fastest-growing organizations here at SAU is the eSports program. It is an excellent way to meet new people, hone in on your video game skills, and to have a good time!

This article does an excellent job of showcasing our eSports teams and how you can join.

There are many other ways to find fun things to do on while on campus. Campus Activities provides social, educational, cultural, physical, and spiritual programs for students to get involved with during their time at SAU. With so much to do on campus, you will never experience a dull moment.
