REC Program

What is the Rec Program?

REC leaders provide students with involvement opportunities and encourages students to participate in in social, educational, service, leadership, and recreational activities that establish the true campus life experience.  

REC leaders also act as a resource support system for their peers by

  • Providing campus resources to each student at their events
  • Helping students better understand campus life
  • Connecting students with  campus resources so each student remains successful
