Stanford University recently celebrated the grand opening of its new Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center (AOERC), the second 75,000-square-foot recreation facility on the university's campus.
University recreation centers are going to great lengths to deliver an experience that meets students’ wants and needs and helps attract prospective students, many of whom factor a university’s recreation center and offerings into their college choice.
Universities continue to invest millions into campus recreation construction and expansion projects. Take a look inside some recreation facilities around the country, which feature innovations designed to help attract new students and keep current students engaged.
