Each year, UREC hosts a welcome event for new students (first year and new transfer students) during JMU 1787 Orientation. Explore the most visited building on campus before classes begin! Join in the fun by swimming and playing in the pools, climbing in the new Adventure Center, playing a pick-up sport in the Sports Forums, or trying a group exercise class.
