Recreation and Wellness

When it comes to recreation and well-being, USU has it all.

Several fitness facilities cater to a range of interests, and students have access to the free health clinic and wellness center. Logan, and the surrounding area, including ski resorts, lakes, rivers, and mountains, make USU one of the finest recreational environments in the nation.

Outdoor Adventures

Logan Canyon is literally one minute from campus and leads to Beaver Mountain Ski Resort and Bear Lake. It has endless hiking and mountain biking trails and more than 275 climbing routes. At the mouth of the canyon is Logan River's First Dam, which offers canoeing, fishing, swimming, cliff jumping, picnic tables, and more. To aid in your adventures, USU's Outdoor Recreation Program provides discounted equipment rentals, sells used equipment, offers classes, and organizes group trips.

Get in Shape

Forget about the freshman 15. USU Campus Recreation operates two exercise facilities that house swimming pools, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a student-only fitness center, a billiards room, racquetball courts, and more. It also organizes intramural sports, club sports, a variety of work-out classes, and the Big Blue race series. For credit, students can take PE classes, including ballroom dancing, aerobics, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, skiing, figure skating, hip hop dance, and more.

Health and Wellness Center

Student Health and Wellness Center

Students have access to a free health clinic and wellness center. The clinic covers all typical medical problems, and has doctors, nurses, pharmacists, x-ray technicians, lab technicians, and more. Prescriptions won't break the bank because the pharmacy provides all medication for students at cost – no insurance needed. The wellness center offers health education, tobacco cessation classes, and even has dietitians, and massage therapists.
