Rec Day brings students together with fitness | Lifestyle

The Student Recreation Center at Cal State Fullerton hosted their fourth annual Rec Day on Wednesday, which included interactive events such as sports challenges, obstacle courses and a raffle where students could win exciting prizes. 

Diana Lopez, a fitness department graduate assistant, said the staff had spent months working together on coordinating this event. Over 500 students participated in this year’s Rec Day, which shows progress in attendance, said Aaron Tapper, the director of the Student Recreation Center.

“Every year, we seem to see bigger programs and services that we offer for Rec Day and also more students that have participated. Each year we have seen an increase in participation,” Tapper said. 

For Rec Day, the recreational center had numerous activities for students to come out and enjoy. At the front of the gym, they had an inflatable obstacle course where students could race each other two at a time. At the rock climbing wall was the Crate Stack, where students would try and stack empty crates up as high as possible without them falling over, safely harnessed in a bungee cord. 

The basketball court offered a few different activities: a 3-point contest, a pull-up/dead hang challenge where students tried to see how many pull-ups they can do or how long they can dead hang for and bungee basketball, which is an inflatable basketball course. 

The pool area featured food vendors that were available to students participating in the event. The recreation center rented the Salt-N-Pepper food truck and set up a s’more station. The Associated Students’ Food Pantry had stations set up for the students to enjoy some snacks. 

“I think it’s really cool that it can bring a lot of people together,” Lorena Zapata García, a Communications student, said. “They have a lot of different activities, and they give you tickets so you can enter different raffles and stuff like that. It’s been really cool. A great vibe.” 

Rec Day included a raffle for the students, offering prizes like AirPods, national park passes, backpacks and sleeping bags, Tapper said.
