Historical Note

Recreation was a priority even in the early years of the university. Early traditions show that the camaraderie and health associated with physical activity was highly valued by the school that would become Towson University. While intramural and club sports were part of the school almost from its very beginning, Campus Recreation was established as a department in 2001 as Campus Recreation Services. This was due in part because of the work done by Physical Education faculty member Ned Britt, who oversaw intramural, recreation, and club sports starting in 1972. From the 2001/2002 catalog: "Campus Recreation Services is made up of five programs: Adventure Pursuits, Fitness/Wellness, Informal Recreation, Intramural Sports, and Sport Clubs. The programs utilize the three gymnasiums, weight room, Burdick Field, beach volleyball court, pool, climbing wall and tennis courts. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the facilities during open hours." In the spring of 2024, Campus Recreation moved under the Athletics department.
