UBC REC Bigger and Better

By merging two departments, UBC REC is now bigger and better to serve the UBC community. The dynamic sport and recreation program gives students, faculty and staff the chance to get active and get involved through intramurals and league sports, events, tournaments, personal fitness, informal / drop-in activities, instructional programs and outdoor recreation.

With a record number of 22,429 participants last year, program manager Kavie Toor says UBC REC has the biggest intramurals program in the country. More than 30 per cent of all first year students participate. Toor says statistics show first-year participants have a higher grade point average (70.74 per cent) than non-participants (68.51 per cent) -- more proof that exercise is good for you!
