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!
