What is Rec the Ravine?

Rec the Ravine is a recreational lifestyle event put on by Campus Recreation the first Thursday of the fall semester.  This event is a one of a kind opportunity for the EKU community to come out and enjoy three hours of friends, food, and fun!  The event features fun activities by Adventure Programs, Fitness, Health Education, and Intramurals and Sports Clubs.



 Where is the event?

The event is held at the center of campus in the Ravine.  For three hours the Ravine will be transformed into a recreational playground.  Portable rock climbing wall, tree climbing, tye-dying stations, and so much more!  The Ravine never looked so good!
