The Department of Recreational Sports provides an extensive and diverse list of sport, fitness and adventure opportunities to serve the varied recreation preferences and activity interests of the campus community. 

It is our mission to support student success by creating engaging environments for student growth and success. We inspire healthy living by providing quality recreational and educational opportunities for the OSU community.

Recreational Sports stands with our black students, students of color and communities of color. 

"As a university community, we must join together to ensure that all members of the OSU community — students, faculty, staff and visitors — not only feel welcomed and safe, but experience our community as a place to thrive." 

-President Emeritus Ed Ray
