The Office of Recreational Sports is made up of five components that serve the campus community:
- Fitness – Approximately 80 percent of the campus community regularly uses the cardio equipment, circuit machines, and free weights to achieve their fitness goals. There are also about 30 exercise classes per semester.
- Informal recreation – The fitness center encourages its constituents to engage in informal activities, such as pick-up basketball games or indoor soccer or badminton matches.
- Intramurals – More than 25 percent of the undergraduate population participates in this extracurricular program of traditional and nontraditional activities.
- Outdoor Recreation Equipment Center – OREC is a great opportunity for members of the campus community to try their hand at outdoor activities. The center provides cross-country skis, snowshoes, kayaks, and camping equipment through a rental system. Climbing wall memberships are also available through OREC.
- Sport clubs – Consisting of more than 35 clubs, this program exists to further a common interest in a physical activity through competition, instruction, participation, or performance.
It is through these components that we provide meaningful experiences, the opportunity to develop leadership skills, and an appreciation of a well-rounded, healthy, and active lifestyle in all students, faculty, and staff.
