Recreational Sports
Support Rec Sports

A gift to Rec Sports helps provide state-of-the-art recreation facilities and activities to students, employees, and the community.

We're way more than just a gym: Rec Sports has one of the largest impacts on campus. Last year, 24,000 Hokies utilized Rec Sports facilities, and students who exercised multiple times per week also recorded higher GPAs.

The Department of Recreational Sports encompasses engaging and educational disciplines including fitness programs, intramural sports, sport clubs, outdoor adventures and education (Venture Out), aquatic programs, golf and disc golf, and much more.

Last year, Giving Day funds supported the conversion of our grass fields to turf, providing our community with safer and more playable fields.
