Football / Chapel at UJ

Would you like to join something fun? Then, you must join the event in UJ!

In UJ, students can receive the week schedule that can join. 

In this site, I will show some events that I experienced since begin at UJ. 

If you are going to be an exchange student at UJ, please, check it out!

~Watching football games~

Football is one of the most popular sports in the US. People at UJ are also enthusiastic about it. The football game was taken place in Charlotte & Gordon Hansen Stadium at UJ. Before the game, UJ held the tailgate that is a celebration for people who want to enjoy the comradery of the game in the parking area beforehand. During this time fans were gathered around in small groups enjoying the not only the good weather, but the visual features of the newly built stadium.  My friend and I joined this party and enjoyed eating, playing games, and making new friends.

Going into the stadium, the field and large screen monitor is what caught my attention. Most of the spectators were sitting in the bleachers and watching the game, but this time, I went down to the field where the game was played.

Many UJ students gathered down there in the student section called “ORANGE TIDE”. In this section we were given free drinks! So if you feel you are melting from all the hype and excitement, the orange tide has got you covered!

During the game there was great energy, cheering, and game rituals that I found to be exciting. Honestly, I am not very educated on the rules of American football, but, thanks to the excitement and atmosphere of the UJ student body, I enjoyed watching my first football game. 

The result of this game was victory for UJ! 

I realized that watching football is truly a great event to experience the American atmosphere!

~Worship in Voorhees Chapel ~

I was really impressed by the chapel event because I am not a Christian myself. Worship events at UJ are held in the beautiful Voorhees Chapel, every Thursday.

The event starts at 11:00am and is about 30 minutes long. The students involved, sung the songs around Christianity. Not only did they sing, but also, interacted with people who simply attended to watch. When I joined this event for the first time, I did not know about the songs, but the joyful environment of singing made me join the singing gradually. Aside from it, I got to interact with many new friends. It was my first interaction with the Church of Christ. This event is not mandatory, meaning it is open to everyone!

“Pit Stop Sports” Openings available in Jamestown

Tired of the same weekly routine and looking for something to do in Jamestown? Check out Pit Stop Sports, a brand-new axe throwing and golf simulator facility. Pit Stop Sports opened its doors in late August and business has been picking up speed ever since. The owner of Pit Stop Lube and Pit Stop Sports, Michael Hansen, had been looking for a new business idea after they moved locations for Pit Stop Lube. Extra space when they bought the new building gave them the perfect opportunity to broaden their horizons. From this, Pit Stop Sports was born. 

Pit Stop Sports has four axe throwing bays and four golf simulators. You can rent one, multiple, or all of the game areas by the hour or half an hour. The hourly rate is $45 per area, so if you bring a group of people, you can split the cost between them. Pit Stop Sports also serves food and beverages, the menu ranging from appetizers to pizza and grill items. Pit Stop Sports is open Mon – Sat, 10:00 am – 10:00 pm, Sunday 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Check out the Pit Stop Sports Facebook page for any rates or deals. You can either reserve a spot by calling Pit Stop Sports at (701) 952-0860 or show up to the physical location at 117 4th ST NW, Jamestown, ND. 

If you are looking for a new group activity, or just need to blow off some steam, Pit Stop Sports is perfect for your next outing!

New Beginnings for The Criminal Justice Club 

The Criminal Justice Club has made it’s comeback from its last appearance, which was four years ago. The individual who proudly represents and started this club up and running again is Professor Suzanna Godboldt. She states, “This club is going to focus on exposing people for career awareness, a recruitment tool for agencies, and to get involved off campus because there’s nothing other than seeing it to better understand it.”  

This fall, the Criminal Justice Club is focusing on completing a self-defense class for individuals who have joined the club. Godboldt mentioned, “It’s an exciting first event everyone should be a part of and a great way to start the club running.” Another short-term goal for the club is touring the law enforcement center here in Jamestown. Touring the law enforcement facilities will give students insight into what the environment is like in these facilities and gives them an opportunity to ask questions to professionals.  

Furthermore, a long-term goal for the club is to explore out-of-state facilities with longer trips to expand the knowledge of our club members. Professor Godboldt thought that an all-female prison in Nebraska would be a unique experience to tour due to the prison nursery program!   

Lastly, Professor Godboldt is beneficially the key to community connections. These efforts will teach valuable lessons and provide unique experiences that each member will be able to take into a workplace environment!  

If you’re interested come meet Officer Haley Comstock, Officer Bridget VanDanacker, Officer CJ Toedter, and Officer Jayden Schlarmann or email Suzanne.Godboldt@uj.edu. Professor Godboldt will post announcements on the Criminal Justice Bulletin Board on the second floor of Lyngstad!
