BestCollegeReviews.org has ranked the best college recreation centers across the country and three Ohio universities make the list.
The University of Akron is ranked No. 14. U of A’s world class facility is 295,000 feet and features a 56-foot rock climbing wall, leisure pool, spa and lazy river. “So you’ve got an indoor water park basically bolted onto a killer gym included when you attend Akron. Just the thing needed to wait out the cold Ohio winters,” the caption to the photo reads.
Coming in at No. 5 is Ohio State for its Olympic-sized pool with a bubble bench and slide. It’s the biggest rec center in Ohio.
University of Cincinnati takes the No. 1 in the top 25 list. Its rec center has a juice bar and convenience store, three pools, over 21,000 pounds of weights, a climbing wall, and suspended track. The high ranking may also come from University of Cincinnati’s emphasis on architecture.
