On November 19th, Montclair State`s Campus Recreation Center was voted as one of the top 20 Most Impressive College Gyms and Student Rec Centers by BestValueSchools.com. BestValueSchools is a site designed to outline and highlight specific aspects of particular schools in order to make choosing a possible college easier and more interesting. It is a popular resource that undergraduate and graduate students can use to learn about perspective schools.
This recognition is a great honor for us here at the Campus Recreation Center because it validates the enormous effort we put forth daily to not only function as the best fitness facility that we can, but also as a dependable and reliable resource for the entire 19,000 plus student body.
First and foremost, we provide our students with easy access to good health and fitness. Between our 1st floor fitness area which offers free weights varying from 5lbs to 125lbs, six bench presses and three squat racks, to our 2nd floor fitness area outfitted with over 70 individual cardio machines, over 20 specialized strength-building machines and an 8th of a mile indoor track, all coupled with a full gymnasium, indoor pool, racquetball courts and multipurpose rooms for group exercise classes, there are countless options for any level of fitness enthusiast to enjoy.
Secondly, our ever growing Special Events and Outdoor Adventure Programs offer a specific and unique kind of experience for students. We host events like game show renditions of The Price is Right and Minute to Win it and trips to popular spots like Stokes State Park and Breakneck Ridge. We are as diverse in our programs as our student population is in its needs and wants.
Since our Recreation Center`s establishment in March of 2008, we continue to strive to be worthy of being placed amongst the recreation elite and now, in not a small way, we have met that goal.
