The amazing Pohl Rec Center is the best place to work off steam and stay active. Take on the 45-foot climbing wall, swim laps in the two pools or join a match in the indoor soccer gym. While you’re in the rec center, you can even sign up for camping, canoeing and hiking trips through the Outdoor Pursuits Center.
Our student organizations include academic honor societies, professional development and community service organizations, cultural groups and sport clubs. And if you can’t find the club or interest you’re looking for, you can form your own student organization!
