About the Rec Center

Re-dedicated in September 2014, this facility is a hotspot for activity on the CMU campus and is open to students, faculty, and staff. What can you do there? Anything you want. You may find yourself working out in our newly-designed fitness room, playing games on our recreational basketball/volleyball court, competing in an intense racquetball or ping-pong match, doing yoga in our 40-yard turf room, or swimming laps in our quarter-size Olympic swimming pool.
