UREC-FEST

This year's UREC-FEST will take place Thursday, August 21, 2014 from 9-11pm!

Each year, UREC hosts a welcome event for new students (first year and new transfer students) during JMU 1787 Orientation. Meet our staff and learn about everything UREC has to offer. Come prepared to have fun, whether that be to swim in the pool, climb the rockwall, try a group fitness class, use our fitness equipment, or play some pickup sports. There will be food, music and giveaways as well!

If you'd like to work out, appropriate exercise attire is required to participate in Fitness I, II and the Pool. This is the only time that new students will be able to workout in Fitness I & II without the rest of the JMU community. Your JACard is your admission ticket.
