Introducing…. UREC

Starting this academic year, University Recreation (UREC for short) is the campus destination for intramurals, fitness, outdoor recreation and the many related programs/events. For clarification, the Kress Events Center is the name of the building that holds most of these UREC programs while also supporting athleticUREC-rgbs. The name of the building will not change, rather UREC is added to help current and future students understand where their recreation needs can be met. See a related video and photo gallery on the new Outdoor Recreation Program organized under the UREC umbrella.
