Campus recreation offers numerous club sports and dozens of intramural squads, so it’s easy to find athletic glory on our campus. Our club teams have won national championships, and other students have earned campus bragging rights through our intramural leagues. If you're interested in learning a new sport, you'll find plenty of options. Aikido, anyone?

If you’d prefer to work up a sweat without joining a team, you can stay in shape at the Physical Activities Center. Our health club is always packed. Pump some iron, run on the treadmills, or swim a few laps in our indoor pool.




The Department of Campus Recreation provides extracurricular athletic, recreational, leisure and employment opportunities to enrich the Furman University undergraduate learning experience.  The department fosters a lifetime appreciation and involvement in recreation and wellness activities for our students, faculty and staff by providing quality programs, facilities, equipment and services.  Participation in a Campus Recreation activity contributes to the physical, social, intellectual and cultural development to those we serve.





Physical activity and total body wellness are integral partners in developing and maintaining a healthy mind and body, two attributes necessary to succeed at a liberal arts college.  Working collaboratively with other University departments, and maximizing facilities, resources, and the highly qualified professional staff and faculty, the Campus Recreation department strives to offer our community the opportunity for a healthy lifestyle through comprehensive formal and informal, structured and unstructured and comprehensive programs.
