The mission of Campus Recreation is to provide students and the campus community with the highest quality, comprehensive and varied schedule of activities, designed to allow participants to experience social interaction, develop leadership and team-building skills and improve physical fitness. Total commitment to students is our highest priority, and we pledge to make all programs accessible, and inclusive, while remaining focused on participant diversity, customer service and professionalism. Our programs will create opportunities for students to achieve personal growth, while providing a fun and valued experience, as we recognize that students with a positive collegiate experience, both in and out of the classroom, make better citizens and community members in this ever-evolving global community.
