Recreation and Wellbeing

At Recreation & Wellbeing, we move Badgers to play hard, get fit, and live well. There is a strong link between physical activity, sense of community, and overall wellbeing. However, there are students who cannot afford to fully participate in all of our programs because of out-of-pocket costs. With your help, we can make sure that no Badger has to sit on the sidelines. 

The No Fees Project provides access to our add-on services at no cost to students who have the highest financial need. Due in part to the generosity of our donors, we’re able to offset costs for more than 6,000 students to participate in: 

  • intramural sport leagues, 
  • group fitness classes, 
  • nutrition education classes, 
  • ice skating, 
  • tennis, 
  • ice skating lessons, and 
  • swimming lessons. 

Your gift goes directly toward a student’s participation in one of these programs and helps establish lifelong health and wellbeing habits.
