CONTENTS

Campus Recreation is one of three departments that make up Health & Well-Being. At the Campus Recreation Complex (CRC), health and well-being are not just buzz words. They are the primary focus when developing programs and services for the Georgia Tech community. The CRC is one of the national leaders in campus Health & Well-Being initiatives and creates an environment of integrated well-being for our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Using the Georgia Tech strategy model that outlines the five dimensions of well-being (professional, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical) and the levels of change in which they occur (personal, interpersonal, organizational, environmental, and policy), members of the Georgia Tech community can better define personal journeys towards total well-being through participation. The CRC is leading the way in providing an atmosphere that allows the Georgia Tech community to travel their own path to a healthy, smart, and happy lifestyle.

LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE COURSE

Affordable, Effective & Fun!

Three words that don’t usually go together: Affordable, Effective, and Fun. That’s how participants describe their challenge course experiences! We are proud of what people say about us. It means you can trust that a modest investment can provide significant returns for your team. Fun is part of what we deliver, but it’s not the main purpose. We think of “fun” like the cup when you buy a coffee – It’s included with your purchase, but it’s not the reason you stand in line at Starbucks. Adventure-based trainings can lead individuals to achieve more! An afternoon can improve how groups work together. Challenge Course trainings are appropriate for student organizations, work teams, businesses, and any group that thrives on effective teamwork. Call (404) 385-1374 or visit crc.gatech.edu.
