Be positive. Be healthy. Be active.
By now, you have received multiple communications from President Montgomery and our Provost, Dr. Jennifer Bott, regarding the university’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. WMU remains open, as education is being offered at a distance for the remainder of spring semester and some services are being offered distance as well.
In alignment with courses being offered through distance education for the remainder of the semester, University Recreation is offering services and programs from a distance as our staff is working remotely during this time. You can also receive assistance and answers to your questions about club sports, fitness, intramural sports and facility information/rentals at a distance via email, phone and video.
