Recreation and Fitness

If you are looking for ways to stay active, there are plenty of opportunities on the Athens campus! Visit the 168,000-square-foot Ping Recreation Center, with its impressive offerings, or try out the Aquatic Center, Bird Ice Arena, golf course and driving range, or Tennis Center.

If you enjoy the outdoors, go for a run or a bike ride on the 21-mile bike path, or hiking at The Ridges—a 700-acre land lab right on the Athens campus. OHIO also offers more than 30 club sports, and thousands of students participate in intramural sports.
