College Takeover Series Returns to Swimming World Instagram

College takeovers are back - iu
Nova Southeastern University relaunched the series on Friday, 10/9. Next up, the Hoosiers of Indiana University.

Colleges and universities from across the country share a “day in the life” of a college athlete.

Swimming World has teamed together with college aquatic programs all over the country to create an exclusive weekly social media series on Swimming World Instagram

Athletes from their respective colleges share pictures and videos from all parts of their day including training, eating, studying, and the general life of a student athlete on their campus on the Swimming World Instagram stories.

The series came to a halt in the spring when the pandemic hit. But as colleges are transitioning back into the pool, the “college takeover” series is making its return. Last year, schools such as Louisiana State, University of Southern California, University of Tennessee and University of Hawaii were featured.

You can expect to see swimmers, divers and water polo players introducing coaching staff, showing off the campus and training facilities, describing off-campus life, documenting pre and post-practice meals, relaxation techniques, housing, COVID adjustments and much more!

This series is a way for colleges and universities to take pride in their institutions and programs, as well as for prospective students and their families to learn more about the schools they may be interested in attending.

Senior swimmers from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL shared their “day in the life” with us last week, including their post-practice sunrise, midterm relaxation at the beach and newfound training adjustments.

Tomorrow (Friday October 16th), Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana will take over the Instagram, so make sure to follow Swimming World @swimmingworldmag so you do not miss out!

In the meantime, head to the “highlights” section of the Swimming World Instagram profile to watch the previous takeovers. Swimming World recently had a special takeover from Lilly King from the ISL team Cali Condors!  She took us around the “bubble” in Budapest!

If your team is interested in doing a takeover, please contact in an email with your coach and SID.
