The mission of Campus Recreation and Wellness is to connect, educate, and inspire the campus community to lead a balanced healthy lifestyle through exceptional facilities, programs and services. This area consists of the Wellness Center, Natatorium, Intramurals and Club Sports.
The Wellness Center seeks to provide safe, well-equipped facilities and trained, caring staff to the campus and Aiken Community. Located in the lower level of Business and Education Building, the Center is open seven days a week, housing a cardiovascular and strength training area, an aerobics room, an exercise testing laboratory, an educational room and locker room facilities.
The Natatorium is adjoining the Student Activities Center. The pool is open seven days a week for lifeguard-supervised activities including lap swimming, water aerobics, recreational activities, and pool party rentals. A competitive swim league also trains at the Natatorium. Locker room facilities are available.
Intramurals consists of competitive and noncompetitive activities that students can engage in to stay physically active. The program is designed to offer a variety of challenging and enjoyable activities to every member of the student body. Activities include vigorous team sports such as flag football, soccer, volleyball and basketball; competitive individual events such as table tennis and pool tournaments; and non-competitive recreational activities.
Club Sports are considered a student organization and bring in the atmosphere of competition against other campuses across the region. USC Aiken has eight club sport organizations including three styles of equestrian, shotgun, swim club, and ping pong club. Clubs can be created by any student at USC Aiken with an interest in a specific competitive event.
