Plourde Recreation Center
The Department of Campus Recreation and the Plourde Recreation Center are committed to a student-centered approach for recreation programs and facilities. A large variety of intramural sports, club sports, fitness classes, and special events are offered to allow every participant maximum enjoyment, regardless of previous playing experience and/or ability. The Plourde Recreation Center is fully equipped with cardio equipment, free weights, machines & stretching/meditation areas. The facility also includes a pool, racquetball courts and multipurpose courts for a variety of open recreation opportunities. There are numerous opportunities for employment and leadership positions in Recreation such as facility supervisor, facility monitor, intramural official, lifeguard, or fitness instructor.
The Recreation programs are designed to enrich the college experience for all participants and through these programs we provide diverse opportunities that promote a sense of community, support student development through leadership/employment opportunities, and encourage the pursuit of a healthy, active lifestyle for the entire campus community. The Recreation programs are designed to help students meet new friends, develop new interests, make worthy use of their leisure time, and have a more rewarding academic year through a balanced lifestyle that includes physical exercise.
