Recreation & Fitness

Something for Everyone

Opportunities to engage in recreation at Rensselaer are dynamic and varied. The Mueller Center is the hub of recreation. The campus community may pursue their own self-directed cardio and weight training fitness routines and participate in a variety of fitness classes utilizing spaces within the facility. There are also many opportunities to participate in intramural or club sports, and participate in wellness related special events with the Wellness Institute
