We’re back with another video, this time touching on some of the fun fitness and recreation options at Stanford. Don’t worry, there are plenty of choices for a wide variety of preferences.
First and foremost, there are two recreation centers: the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation and the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center. Here there are plenty of options ranging from treadmills, weights, basketball and squash courts, a pool, and much more!
There are also outdoor recreation options on campus. There are sand volleyball courts littered throughout campus as well as outdoor basketball and tennis courts. Multiple fields line the residences with space to play anything from ultimate frisbee to tag football. The track is even open to the public (just make sure you stay off of the inner 3 lanes or Brittany might yell at you).
Finally, just off campus (but technically still on campus, idk it’s confusing) is the Stanford Dish! It’s 3.7 miles of walking and jogging trails that give amazingly scenic views of the Bay. It’s fun to go with friends or even by yourself just to get away from it all.
You can click on the picture below or follow this link to view the video. You can even catch Walker trying (unsuccessfully) to climb a wall, so don’t miss out!
Needless to say, there are many ways to exercise and decompress, and this isn’t even an exhaustive list! Whether you use all of these options or none of them, just be sure to find ways throughout the year to relax and get away from the stresses of school and everything else.
With card love,
