About University of Iowa
The Department of Recreational Services is an integral part of the Hawkeye tradition. The department promotes and coordinates campus-wide competitive and recreational activities. Events and programs enhance skills, foster life-long friendships, and teach the understanding of true sportsmanship while promoting healthy lifestyle choices. The department has a longstanding reputation for being a pioneer and leader in collegiate recreation and is well-respected locally, regionally, and within the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association. But it wasn’t until the construction of the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center (CRWC) in 2010 that UI’s indoor recreational facilities moved from the bottom of the Big 10 to one of the best in the country. In 2013, Best College Reviews ranked the CRWC #3 nationally in a publication outlining the 25 most amazing campus student recreation centers.
