About Us

Inspiring Terps to Be Active and Live Well

We believe being physically active is a crucial component of success in and out of the classroom, and we are dedicated to creating a culture of wellness where all members of the University community thrive. 

We facilitate physical activity which provides better sleep, improved mood, a strong immune system, social connection with others, and more energy. Activity also helps students manage stress and symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition to these wellness benefits, being active helps students achieve academic success by boosting mental focus, attention and alertness, and priming the brain for learning. 

We invite every member of the University community to discover their inner Active Terp and find a physical activity they enjoy doing. Recreation is for everyone and there is something for everyone at RecWell.
