This past week at Rosemont has been full of classes and events. My favorite event this week was being a part of Rosemont’s Student Athletic Advisor Committee (R.S.A.A.C). It was our first meeting of the year and my first as the president. I am Rosemont’s College's first male R.S.A.A.C. committee president. Being the first male president is not only new to Rosemont but also for me to take the lead since this is a role that I have never held. Our first meeting ran smoothly. We had some great input from Coach Nord the Head Men’s Soccer Coach, informing us of a big win over Moravian College on Wednesday, beating them two to zero. We are looking forward to a great year; we have some real strong talent!
R.S.A.A.C. is looking forward to receiving your ideas, as student input is important; it lets us know how we are doing, and is a great tool to implement new ideas. The main goal of R.S.A.A.C. is to be a platform where students can submit their ideas and we will then do our best to plan or present it to the athletic board. So your input as a student athlete with regards to classes and athletics is important.
This past Sunday we had our athletic Commissioning Mass. The purpose of the Commissioning Mass is for student athletes to receive a blessing wishing them a great season. The mass is a Catholic mass but we welcome everyone. After the mass we held a barbeque then sent off the men’s soccer team to Baltimore for a game.
In my next blog I'll feature some of the new facilities and training staff. I’m also working on a video about Rosemont's new athletic fields. I’m looking forward to hearing what both the players and guests think of the new field.

Hi, I'm Mike Manning. Each week I will "talk" from a student athlete's point of view at Rosemont College. I have a couple "ins" with athletics so I am able to tell you ahead of time what events are coming up and the exlusive details on our new facilities. I am able to do this because I am the president of the Rosemont Student Athlete Advisor Committee. Not only am I invovled with athletics, but I am also a student ambassador, a Raven Peer Leader and a member of the lacrosse team. I am an Elementary Education major by the way.
I graduated from East Brunswick High School in Central Jersey in 2011. East Brunswick is a very large school; my graduating class exceeded over 700 so it was an odd transition coming to Rosemont College, which is a tight knit community of about 500 undergraduates. However, my transition was smooth due to all of Rosemont's helping hands along with participating in the Bridge Program. I chose Rosemont College because I wanted to help start its men's lacrosse program. I also chose Rosemont due to its small class size and beautiful campus (which is about 10 miles outside of Philadelphia). Soon after completing my first semester at Rosemont I realized this place is a perfect fit for me.
So a couple of upcoming posts I am working on include exclusive access to our new field, R.S.A.A.C. events, Commissioning Mass, family weekend and R.A.C. events. We have a lot of exciting changes happening at Rosemont and even more to talk about. If you ever have any questions for me feel free to email me at email@example.com.
