At Recreation & Wellbeing, we practice what we preach. We work hard. We move fast. We aren’t afraid to fail, and we certainly aren’t afraid to stand out.
With the recent opening of the highly-anticipated Nicholas Recreation Center behind us, we’ve now started construction on our second building project of a $236M Master Plan: a $110M facility on the lakeshore side of campus. Day in and day out, we pride ourselves on living our mission, building community, and “leaning yes” to new ideas. We are a tight-knit group with diverse backgrounds committed to removing barriers, building community, and pushing limits.
We’re more than a building. We’re building a movement. And we hope you’ll consider joining our team.
