BGSU's recreation center has never been a favorite of mine. Due to the quanty and quality of the machines there is usually about a ten minute wait to use an elliptical machine. I decided to give the rec center another chance and take off a day off from running. Like usual there was a wait for the elliptical machines. I waited about five minutes before I got a machine. When I finally got on, the resistance on the machine didn’t work!
BGSU’s student rec center is a joke compared to other college recreation centers around Ohio.
The University website states “the Student Recreation Center has enhanced the quality of life for the entire University community since opening its doors on January 2, 1979.
Since 1979, BGSU has done little to update the fitness center (hence the 80’s woodwork feel).
The recreation center has two swimming pools, one whirlpool, a sauna in each locker room, a wallyball court, three squash courts, a weight room, spinning room, cardio area, running track, climbing wall, and sand volleyball court. The fee to use the center is paid for through the general college tuition.

To the left is a picture of Kent States recreation center. The center consists of five outdoor basketball courts, two outdoor tennis courts, five outdoor sand volleyball courts, three indoor pools. A climbing wall, café, massages, and the list continues.
This is Ohio State University's rec center!
