If you're looking for something more physical, don't forget the student recreation center near Gemmell Student Complex for exercise equipment, an indoor track, basketball courts and a rock climbing wall. Intramurals, club sports and outdoor recreation also are based at the rec center.
If you don't play sports, become Clarion University's biggest fan by rooting for your
favorite Clarion athletic teams.
The university also is invested in the overall wellness of its students with health services, counseling services and other health activities in Becht Hall.
