Keep Yosef Active!

Happy New Year to our Mountaineer family! University Recreation (UREC) is excited to continue to have the opportunity to impact the community that we serve!

For the spring 2021 semester, UREC will provide spaces for recreation in the Student Recreation Center (SRC) that will include working out in the weight room and cardio floor, swimming in the indoor pool, and getting adventurous on the climbing wall. Additionally, virtual and a limited amount of in-person group fitness classes will be available. Intramural, club sports, and outdoor programs will continue to provide opportunities for recreating as operations alter. In-person activities will resume once students are allowed to return. Virtual and online events will be hosted to keep participants involved! For the most up-to-date list of programs visit the University Recreation website or download the UREC App in your app store. These opportunities will begin on January 19.
