Recreational Services fits the bill

Now that winter has clearly arrived, perhaps it's time to rent cross-country skis, boots, and poles from Touch the Earth Outdoor Rental Center, located in the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex. Photo by Tim Schoon.

As you flipped the calendar to 2007, you undoubtedly made New Year’s resolutions to turn on the treadmill, pound the pavement, or, at the very least, expand your exercise routine beyond remote control workouts.

There is good news: UI Recreational Services offers University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students—and the general public, for that matter—a variety of activities in facilities across campus, allowing people the opportunity to get in shape, learn new moves, make social connections, and have a little fun while they’re at it.



fyi asks: Big plans for Spring Break?

We're curious what UI faculty and staff members think about spring break.

Tell us how you spend spring break through this brief survey:


Photo Feature: Hageboeck Hall of Birds

The Taking Flight exhibition on the third story of Macbride Hall features nests, skeletons, eggs, and much more that celebrates the world of birds, including an interactive computer station that plays hundreds of bird songs.
