Rec and Play

On The Move Challenge Kickoff Rec and Play Day!

Friday, April 5, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Why Rec and Play at Work?  Because employees need to have fun too!

Come and get re-energized at our Rec and Play day on Friday, April 5.  Hours will be 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Come when you can for as long as you can!

You’ll have an opportunity to pick from a variety of fun activities, like archery, giant Jenga, spin classes, rock climbing, Bullzibucket, and more.  In addition, we’ll have some light refreshments, opportunities to win prizes, mix and mingle with co-workers, and learn what’s new for 2019 from your Employee Wellness Team.  Kent State dining services and recreational services staff will also be on hand to share in all the festivities and provide “new” news in dining and rec.

So come out and play. We can’t wait to see you!

Registration is requested. Please click here to register to attend.
