Drake Rec Updates

On Friday, August 25th, Drake Rec Services welcomed first year students into the Bell Center with a fun night of activities to inform them about many of the services provided. Students were greeted at the door with the famous prize wheel, and they were entered into a drawing for a free pair of Airpods as they swiped into the Bell Center. Activities included, Pickleball, Volleyball, Basketball, Cornhole, Kan Jam, and many more fun offerings students could try. Various employment opportunities were available for students to explore and learn more about as well. 

Rec Services hosted a 2v2 Sand Volleyball Tournament on September 4th. 8 teams competed, with matches going to 25 points. Each team had the opportunity to compete for this season's new intramural t-shirts. The tournament was a great success and we look forward to hosting more this fall!
