Core and Connect

Core and Connect is a program for JMU students looking to explore a wide range of recreational options with a positive and supportive group. Whether it’s making a new friend, a new healthy habit or increased comfort in coming to UREC... there is something in this program for you!

About Core and Connect

Participating in Core and Connect is a great way to build social connections with other students while experiencing UREC in a supportive group setting.

Each Core and Connect group is led by a UREC Connect Coach and will meet twice a week for 6 weeks. Groups will range from 6 - 12 students depending on enrollment.

Sessions will include trying activities such as pickleball, rock climbing, Group Exercise classes and more!


“I consider myself a very big introvert so being here and having everybody motivate you to do try activities that you might not be comfortable with, it’s a great confidence booster, and that’s what I needed.”

- Grey Tamilio, Spring 2022 Core and Connect participant

“You should sign up for Core and Connect because you get to meet new people and you also get to get more comfortable with UREC and get to experience a lot of different things”
