The majority of each meeting will act as a free-play session, but individual and group lessons are always possible if requested. Casual players are encouraged to come and learn, and experienced players are welcomed to test their prowess against other members. Knowing how to play a game is not a requirement, only interest in it is.

Contact: Jordan Maurer (
The Rose-Hulman SCUBA Club (RHSC) was established first in 1991, and then reactivated in 2001 in order to provide the Rose-Hulman community the opportunity to achieve their SCUBA Diving dreams. The RHSC is designed to provide faculty, staff and students the chance to safely learn about the many aspects of SCUBA through the active use of modern SCUBA techniques and equipment. In addition, members go on dive trips, visit aquariums, and gain knowledge about underwater engineering and protecting the underwater environment. The club participates in numerous fundraisers through the support of local businesses by bringing together divers for fun and good causes.

Scuba Club is devoted to the sport of Scuba Diving, and offering those who normally would not have the means or finances a chance to experience the wonderful sport and obtain their certification. We offer Open Water, Advanced Open Water, and a variety of specialty classes dependent on student interest. In the past we have offered Wreck Specialty, Rescue Diver, and various others. Any student with an interest is invited to join. The costs of certification are significantly (about $200-$300) lower through our club than if one were to pursue certification on their own.

Ultimate Frisbee

Contact: Andrew May (
The Rose-Hulman Ultimate Club plays teams both from other schools and local teams in the sport of Ultimate. Ultimate is a disc sport which has been played in the Midwest for about 15 years. Team members come from a variety of athletic backgrounds. Some of their most active players were not active in sports at all until they started playing Ultimate at Rose-Hulman. Everyone on the team is very willing to teach people how to play; and even if you have never thrown a Frisbee, you are welcome. Ultimate at Rose-Hulman takes a bit of time and effort, but it is well worth it.



Contact: Mike Petro (
Rose's Volleyball Club consists of two levels of participation: a higher level competition squad and a skill building team open to any and all players. The competition squad practices 2-3 times per week and looks to participate in 3-4 tournaments in the spring each year, as well as possibly hosting a home tournament. The skill building team meets once a week during fall and spring quarters and is intended to help individuals build skills as well as have some fun playing volleyball. The club is coed, however, the competition squad mainly competes against other men's club level teams. If you're a Rose student looking to play some volleyball, feel free to send an email to the club contact to be added to the mailing list about practice schedules. If you're a representative from another school looking to schedule a match, please email the club contact as we'd welcome the opportunity to expand the number of teams we compete against.

Contact: Maura Lakowski (
We do yoga. That is pretty much it. We have a professional instructor who leads our meetings/classes, which are taught on a beginner level with optional modifications to certain poses to increase the difficulty level. Yoga is not about competition with others, it is about the individual with the purpose of increasing strength and flexibility while also having the therapeutic benefits of relaxation and stress relief.
