The staff became more like a family to me, people I knew I could rely on.  My overall confidence as a person and my communication skills with customers improved drastically with my time working for Campus Recreation." -Staff Member 2019-20

Campus Rec has been one of my favorite parts of UWRF, and I recommend anyone who ever thinks about joining the team to do so. There isn't a department that is more passionate about what they do on campus." -Staff Member 2019-20

"Working for UWRF Campus Recreation has been one, if not the best, parts of my college career. I have made life-long friendships and have had so much personal growth.
