Recreation facilities can improve enrollment and retention if designed properly. The challenge is building a facility that integrates the social and physical needs of students. By addressing the many needs of your students, you can develop a flexible design and build a recreation facility that engages your entire student body.

Join us in Minneapolis to learn how to design an engaging recreation facility. Expert-led sessions on design best practice, a site visit, and methods for incorporating student services into your facility will allow you to leave this conference with the knowledge to start planning your own rec facility.
