Our Commitment to the Penn State Community

During this period of remote learning, we as a community have to stay connected. At Penn State Campus Recreation, it is our goal to provide recreational opportunities so that you can have fun, reduce stress, stay fit, learn new sports, explore the outdoors, and ultimately find you. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we stay committed to our mission statement:
“Penn State Campus Recreation provides a wide variety of recreation programs, spaces and services that foster meaningful connections and support positive choices for lifelong holistic wellbeing.”
