About the Rec Center

The WSC Rec Center is a great location for working out and hanging with friends. We have a robust intramurals program, and many of the activities are played here. There is an indoor track, basketball, volleyball, and racquetball courts, and a weight room with cardiovascular conditioning equipment. We also offer fitness and wellness classes and rooms where you can work out in your own time.

The Rec Center also offers Fitness on Demand, with more than 250 different exercise class choices. Just check out the room key at the front desk, and work out anytime!
