The HPER Center offers a variety of activities to choose from. Downstairs is an approximate 10,000 sf. weight room with a full-line of selectorized and plate-loaded equipment, and free weights. The cardio room has treadmills, ellipticals, rowers, and a variety of group exercise classes offered in the three group exercise studios upstairs. Also included in the new HPER design are three racquetball courts, and a game area offering a place to enjoy a game of pool, air hockey and more. If you like to shoot hoops or want to get together with friends to enjoy a game of volleyball, don’t forget about three, newly re-finished, full-size basketball courts that can be converted to badminton and volleyball courts.
Campus Outdoor Pursuits & Activities (COPA) is part of the Campus Recreation Department, located in the HPER Center. The COPA program will offer gear to check-out such as tents, backpacks, kayaks, mountain bikes, and canoes. COPA will also offer trips, activities, clinics, and seminars related to outdoor activities. COPA will also serve as resource on information on where to camp, hike, and enjoy the outdoors in Arkansas.
The HPER pool is a 6 lane 25 yard pool. The shallow end is 4.5 feet and the deep end is 12 feet deep.
