Location: Southern Illinois University Edwardsville serves the most populous region of downstate Illinois. The campus is located in the ea...stern metropolitan St. Louis area on over 2,600 acres of rolling land and woods. Interstate highways make the University convenient for those within a 60-mile radius, an area that includes 2,700,000 people. St. Louis, 20 minutes southwest of the campus, is one of the oldest and richest cultural centers of the country, renowned for its symphony, opera, art museums, and conservatories for the arts. It is also a center for educational, medical, botanical, bio-chemical and business research. St. Louis and the surrounding metro area also has a selection of professional, minor league and collegiate sports venues that host their teams in addition to a variety of other events.
SIUE is one of four comprehensive universities among more than 20 institutions of higher education in the metropolitan area. Because the University is part of a metropolitan area, students, faculty and staff can experience the diversions of ethnic restaurants, large retail malls, touring Broadway plays and professional sports. They can also enjoy the natural setting of the campus and nearby state parks, small towns, and historic settlements.
The SIUE Campus Recreation Department has a history of strong student engagement and consistently strives to be attentive and responsive to student interests. Just this past year the Campus Recreation Department completed a facility expansion to more than double the size of its dedicated weight room and a few years ago the department added a $10 million expansion to its Student Fitness Center.
