Programs and Services

University Recreation provides structured and unstructured leisure time activities for students. It is through these activities that students learn life-long skills that contribute to their social, physical, emotional, and intellectual growth and development. University Recreation also serves as a laboratory for training in Recreation Management and related fields. Additionally, University Recreation is responsible for scheduling various athletic and recreational facilities.
