Come As You Are

UC Davis Campus Recreation is an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome regardless of background or level of experience. With six centers, 11 program areas and five outdoor fields, Campus Recreation can help you find your center. If you've ever felt that you needed to look or act a "certain way," push those thoughts aside. No matter what your goals, we're here to help you accomplish them, so take a break from your academic rigor and join us! 

Physical activity and overall wellness is a key component of living a healthy lifestyle. Incorporating movement into your daily routine can increase your energy, enhance your academic performance, reduce stress and improve your confidence. Movement doesn't have to happen in the way many traditionally think of it. Move in any way that is enjoyable. March with the UC Davis Marching Band, learn flameworking at the Craft Center or ride a horse at the Equestrian Center. Whatever fitness and wellness means to you, Campus Recreation offers you a space to come as you are and make it your own!

Below is a sample of the training that the Campus Recreation student staff receives for Come As You Are.
