Completed in 2004 as part of a $2 million renovation project, the Taylor Recreation Center includes a state-of-the-art fitness center that houses ample amounts of weights (free and machine) and cardio equipment. The TRC also includes a recreation gymnasium used for a variety of departmental activities including intramurals, group fitness, informal recreation, and special events.

And for those that enjoy a good walk and/or run don’t forget to check out the Bishop Trails. These are five designated trails throughout campus measuring anywhere from .25 miles to 1 mile.

Club Sports are registered student organizations formed by individuals with a common interest in a sport or recreational activity that exists to promote and develop interest in that particular activity. Clubs may be instructional, recreational, competitive, or some combination thereof. Because they are student-initiated and student-managed, club sports provide members numerous opportunities for leadership and decision-making. Effective leadership of officers and the degree of involvement of its members directly determine the success and strength of the club. Students interested in forming a new club should contact the Director of Intramural Sports & Recreation.
