Welcome to the wonderful world of WKU Intramural-Recreational Sports. We are looking forward to another exciting year and can’t wait for you to explore all of the different opportunities available to you. This magazine is an overview of all of the various programs and services provided to you by our department. The WKU Intramural-Recreational Department has played an instrumental role in so many of our students lives including my own. As a freshman, I was encouraged to participate in numerous intramural sports which quickly led to a job at the Preston Center as an intramural official, then as the Sport Club Graduate Assistant and I eventually accepted my current position as the Sport Club Coordinator. I have been so fortunate to have been surrounded by so many wonderful mentors, colleagues and friends because of my involvement within the Intramural Recreational Sports Department. My goal is to provide the same opportunities to our students that I was so blessed to have been afforded during both my undergraduate and graduate experiences at WKU. So whether you’re interested in getting involved with intramurals, sport clubs, outdoor adventures, aquatics, fitness, and wellness (or looking for job opportunities), I encourage you to get out there and explore as many avenues as possible. Who knows what may happen? It could be a life changing experience for you just as it has been for me. The Raymond B. Preston Health & Activities Center is one of the most popular locations on the WKU campus and we don’t want you to miss out on the fun! Feel free to stop by anytime for a visit.

Have a great year!
