Our picturesque nine-hole course located on South Avenue is perfect for beginners to experienced golfers alike. A driving range and chipping green offer a practice area for all abilities. In the off season, the golf course is a favorite place for cross-country skiing and sledding.

Climbing Wall

One of the first things you'll notice in the Fitness and Recreation Center is the state of the art Climbing Wall. Bouldering is available anytime the facility is open, while top-rope (belay) climbing is limited to specific hours when a wall monitor is on duty. Classes and workshops are held frequently at the wall so you can learn the basics or advance your skills.

Soccer, softball, flag football, basketball, dodgeball, volleyball, inner tube water polo, tennis, golf, ultimate Frisbee and more are offered during Fall and Spring semesters. An annual 10k/5k run, which is open to the public, is also a popular and fun event in the Fall.
