Tip of the Week

Get Active. Be Well.

One of the best ways to handle the stress of college life is through fitness. NIU Recreation gives you the tools you need to develop healthy habits and achieve a balanced outlook on life. Use our fitness machines, participate in intramural sports, swim laps, rent a court or outdoor equipment, or take an adventure trip.
