Student Recreation

This is where you come to play.

Student Recreation is the place on campus where you can find all of your favorite activities to participate in when you aren't working on school work. Our department is made up of Intramural Sports and Outdoor Recreation. With at least two events per week and more than 100 events every year, we promise that you will always have something to look forward to.

Intramural Sports

We offer more than a dozen sports where students compete with each other, and maybe even your professors, on campus throughout the year. Create a team on IMLeagues today so you don't miss out on your chance to win a coveted champion t-shirt! All skill levels are welcome to participate.

Outdoor Recreation

#ExploreWise by checking out all that our beautiful region has to offer. Not only do we provide you with all the information and equipment you need for exploring, but we also take several trips each semester to expose you to some of our favorite adventures. Many activities are free or cost less than $50 for you to participate. Outdoor Recreation now provides equipment rentals for you and your friends. Want to go on a camping trip? We've got you covered, for free!

Our excursions will take you to the lows and highs, from underground kayaking to skydiving, and everything in between. In a typical semester, you will see trips such as whitewater rafting, skiing, and ziplining, with a few other surprises in between.
