JMU's very own UREC was selected as the feature institution for the November issue of Campus Rec Magazine. The article, authored by Emily Harbourne, highlights the UREC staff's dedication to student development and learning outcomes.

"JMU University Recreation has made it a priority to create programs that provide learning outcomes. But it’s not just traditional programs such as exercise; it’s also other important areas like nutrition, sportsmanship, teamwork and injury prevention. “We had a vision to create learning outcomes for most everything we do, so that we could be intentional about our students’ learning,” added Nickel. “This resulted in some programs, services or operating methods to be discontinued and many more to be added. We found starting with what students will learn from our program and services allowed us to focus on the things we thought would create a well-rounded JMU student and enhance their classroom learning here at JMU.”"
