Recreation Center to offer free summer memberships
Returning students and new graduates will both be eligible for free summer access to the Recreation Center.

Oakland University’s Recreation and Well-Being Department (Rec Well), in partnership with the Oakland University Student Congress (OUSC), is providing free summer memberships to continuing OU students and those graduating at the end of this semester. This marks the first summer students will have free access to the Recreation Center.

“Our overall commitment is to the health and well-being of the student body, and healthy students are successful students,” explains Greg Jordan, director of Oakland University Recreation and Well-Being. “Students are seeking healthier and balanced lifestyles to achieve greater physical, mental and emotional states and Rec Well is committed to making summer access a priority.”

Jordan also said that waiving the traditional $100 cost for continuing students this summer marks a major step towards President Ora Hirsch Pescovitz’s goal of making Oakland University the healthiest campus for Michigan.

Qualifications for Continuing Students

This membership will be used specifically for the summer months and will allow continuing students to use the Recreation Center from May 4, 2019 to September 2, 2019.

To qualify for a free summer membership, students must have been enrolled at OU in winter 2019 and be registered for classes in fall 2019. Students must visit the Recreation Center – Welcome Desk with a valid Grizz I.D. to fill out the brief application form to redeem their summer membership. Then, Rec Well staff will process applications and students who qualify will be notified via their OU email.

Qualifications for Recent Alumni

Alumni graduating at the end of this month (Winter 2019) can also redeem a free summer membership. Alumni must visit the Recreation Center – Welcome Desk with a valid Grizz I.D. card to complete a brief application before May 31, 2019. All free memberships will expire on September 2, 2019 regardless of the date opened.
