Recreation & Wellness Center

The Recreation & Wellness Center at Kent State Stark promotes physical, social and mental well-being.

We believe that “everyBODY” should be given the opportunity to explore how permanent, positive lifestyle changes can increase their ability to succeed. We work together to educate our participants and to maintain a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where our participants can feel proud of what they achieve.

Students at Kent State Stark can build healthy lifestyles by taking advantage of all the fitness services available through the Recreation & Wellness Center. Here you’ll find a half-court volleyball and basketball court, dance/aerobics studio, Nautilus weight machine circuit, free weights, treadmills, stair climbers, elliptical cross-trainers and stationary bikes.

Students can also take for-credit classes in Physical Activity, Wellness & Sport (PWS) and Dance (DAN).


Kent State of Well-being is the university-wide effort to promote wellness, focusing on eight key areas. We strive to create a healthy environment and to prioritize the health and wellness of our community.
