The Scuba Club runs a certification program each semester and at least one Discover Scuba, a free event open to students, faculty and staff to participate in scuba diving. The next Discover Scuba will be held on April 28, 2015. The club goes on dive trips as well as some non-dive trips. These trips include Dutch Springs for diving, Pier 87 for diving and snorkeling and Key West over winter break for diving and snorkeling. The club also goes snow tubing or ice skating in the winter. The club is looking forward to a trip to New Jersey to hunt for shark’s teeth. When the club can’t go into the water, the club participates in an underwater game night in the pool. The club is hoping to expand in the future and to be offered as a class for credits. The club is a group of friends that love to have fun!

“Scuba club is one of the things I have done at LHU. This is where I met a majority of my close friends and made a lot of my college memories. We do a lot of awesome trips such as scuba diving at Dutch Springs where we explore through sunken helicopters, ships, and even buses! Scuba club has become a second family to me. The people and activities we do are amazing. If you love to swim and explore natural waters, you will love scuba club,” said Melissa Weaver, senior.
