RECREATION AT USC

Get up off the couch and get in the game or the pool. After all, we have two! Indoors and out, you'll find lots of options at USC to help you get healthy, stay fit and keep active. Why just sit around?!

Strom Thurmond Wellness & Fitness Center

You'll be amazed at the fantastic, world-class resources of the Strom Thurmond Wellness & Fitness Center, all of which are available to you as a USC student.

Located across from the Carolina Coliseum and next to our Greek Village, "The Strom" serves as your source for activities and active gear with five basketball courts, two sand volleyball courts, five racquetball courts, a squash court, four indoor volleyball courts and a floor hockey/soccer gym.

Maybe you'd rather splash around one of the swimming pools, tackle the climbing wall, take your laps on the indoor track or work your way through the strength and training stations in the 6,000-square-foot fitness room.

Outdoor intramural fields are right nearby. After your workout or game, relax and rejuvenate in the whirlpool or sauna. Life doesn't get much better than that!

Intramural sports and sports club programs also make their home in The Strom. Whether you want a little friendly competition or some challenging workouts, you can find a range of competitive levels in the more than 25 leagues, tournaments and special events offered through USC's intramural program.
