Popular Spots on Campus - The RAC

By International Programs, May 23, 2022

The Recreation & Athletics Center is one of the more popular spots on the Green River College campus. It is located in the Mel Lindbloom Student Center.

According to Rob Pedicone, the Assistant Director of Recreation & Athletics, "The RAC is essentially our student gym on campus.  It is free for all GRC students. One of the main spaces is our weight room, which features strength machines, cardio equipment, and other free weights. We also have our sport court which features volleyball, soccer, badminton, and basketball. Lastly, we have a studio space where several clubs will reserve the space for dancing, different fitness activities, or other fun activities. We also feature group fitness classes such as yoga, HIIT classes, and other aerobic-based classes. The RAC has locker rooms and showers. You can check out towels, basketballs, badminton racquets, and a whole lot more. 

"RAC is not just a gym but, it is also a fun community. You will meet lots of international students and lots of domestic students. Everyone comes here to have fun and to connect.  We hope to see you soon at the RAC!  Everyone is welcome! "

The RAC is currently open Monday through Thursday from 11 am to 8 pm and it is free to current students.  Just remember to bring your Student ID.
