You might think that dental school is so demanding and so stressful that there is no hope of relaxing and having fun...

From crowns to dentures and lectures to seminars, sometimes that can be true.  Fortunately, many students have discovered a great way to reduce the stress: physical activity!  That's right, Pacific has a lot of athletes!  Volleyball, football, soccer, cycling, rugby, hockey, synchronized ice skating, skiing, snowboarding, and swimming... this is a short list of the many sports played by my classmates.  Additionally, there are a myriad of sports clubs including the surf club, running club, high adventure club, and even a yoga club.

The resounding conclusion is that although dental school is stressful, it's important to maintain physical activity to remain sane.  As the saying goes: healthy body, healthy mind!
