Our Commitment to Wellness

The $40 million Student Recreation and Wellness Center, which was designed with input from students, opened in August 2010. The center features more than 400,000 square feet, more than half of which is new or renovated space. The center includes a suspended 200-meter running and walking track, a 15,000 feet of new fitness space with 91 new pieces of cardio equipment, and multipurpose rooms for exercise and meetings.

Dedicated to student use, the light-filled indoor field turf can be divided to allow multiple intramural teams and sports clubs to practice at the same time. The center also houses the Outdoor Pursuits Center, which includes a 35-foot climbing wall, clinics, programs, and rental equipment for such activities as camping, hiking, and canoeing and organizes day and overnight mountain biking and rafting outings.

Goal 4, Objective E: By 2010, complete construction of recreation and wellness facility.
