Campus Recreation

Studying is hard work; you’re going to need to take breaks. Thanks to the Athletic/Recreation Center (ARC) and comprehensive intramural and fitness programs that provide just enough competition to blow off steam, you’ll be relaxed enough to hit the books again in no time.

The 78,000-square-foot ARC provides exercise and practice space for varsity and intramural sports as well as general recreational facilities. The facility, part of a $30 million campus expansion and beautification project, contains additional classrooms and staff offices; and space for student organizations to meet and for students to gather informally.

The Department of Campus Recreation welcomes all students, faculty, alumni, and staff regardless of their athletic abilities. Our intramural program is structured to provide the entire USciences community with the opportunity to participate in a variety of competitive and recreational sports activities.

Our programs encompass stress management, leadership and teamwork development, civil engagement, intramural and club sports, group fitness and much more. Achieve GREATNESS at the ARC!
