As a grad student, I rely on RecWell facility and group fitness classes to help keep me balanced through the rigors of PhD life. It would be hard to imagine what grad school would be like without the community of friends and support I’ve found in RecWell! Amanda Khanh Nguyen, Graduate Student, Group Fitness Participant
At UMD, my friends call me the ‘Intramural King.’ I’ve played on over 65 intramural sports teams with many fellow Terps who I call true friends of mine. Sharing the bond of being someone’s teammate creates long-lasting relationships off the field. Avi Kozlowski, Intramural Sports Participant
I had no idea that leading adventure program trips was going to be so revealing. To my surprise, being from prior military service, I’ve learned more about leadership and myself during this semester than I have in the 5 years I spent on submarines. Angel Lopez, Student Veteran, Adventure Trip Leader
A lot of our team are members of the LGBT community. Through the club, we’ve all found a place where we can be accepted and be ourselves. I don’t know what I would do without my support system, and this team is my support system. Julz Harvey, Women's Rugby Club President
I feel I have more energy and I have lost six pounds since working with my personal trainer. I am hitting the gym now Monday through Friday. He has really motivated me to work hard. I think working out at Eppley has saved my life. Francis Hawkins, UMD Staff, Personal Training Client
