About the Department of Recreation & Wellness

When you are physically active, you perform more effectively in all areas of your life. For this reason, we provide you with a multitude of fun physical activities to engage in with others or on your own — no matter what your fitness level may be. What’s more, recognizing that other dimensions of your life besides the physical also contribute to your wellness and well-being, we also provide you with a wealth of wellness programs and resources.
