Activities and Recreation

From intramural sports to student clubs and organizations to special campus events, there’s something for everyone at MTC!  Getting involved in these activities is a great way to network, enhance your knowledge and skills for your resume, stay healthy, have fun, and be a well-rounded student.

Marion Campus Recreation, Health, and Wellness

Staying active helps you stay productive and successful. In the Alber Student Center, our students have access to a fitness center with treadmills, rowing machines, stationary bikes, ellipticals, and free weights; an indoor rock-climbing wall; and an open gym (basketball, badminton). In the multi-purpose room, you can take part in yoga, pound, or meditation/relaxation classes.  There is also a game room with pool tables, video games, ping pong, and air hockey, and we have a variety of intramural and club sports. This is all FREE!

We also sponsor an annual campus wellness fair, quarterly health checks, and individual fitness programs.
