Campus Recreation’s programs are designed to meet the athletic and recreational needs of the whole community–all students, staff, and faculty. Programs provide opportunities for the worthwhile use of leisure time and maintenance of high-level health and wellness. Activities are held in the Simon Forum and associated outdoor facilities.
Our activities often fall within six major program areas:
Fitness: Cardio-vascular equipment (e.g. ergs, ellipticals, treadmills, recumbent bikes) and strength-training equipment are located in the Simon Forum’s Fitness & Weight Rooms. Weekly classes are also offered free to students, faculty and staff. Fitness Class Registration.
Intramural Sports: Both team and individual competition take place in sports and activities such as flag football, indoor/outdoor soccer, basketball, softball, squash, tennis, volleyball, etc. There are leagues, tournaments, trophies, MVPs, and occasional travel to regional and national tournaments.

They include: the Drew Rangerettes Dance Team, Men’s and Women’s Rugby, Step Team, Co-Ed Volleyball, Co-Ed Club Soccer, the Drew Pep Band, Drew Unified, Co-Ed Ultimate Frisbee and our Outdoor Recreation Club.
