Cool off at the newly renovated Rec Pool—open year-round and now fully Wi-Fi enabled—and check out the many additions, including a new Competition Pool and a sand volleyball court.  This month, RecFest will mark the grand opening of the Rec Pool and ARC with giveaways, food, games and fun, plus a live DJ.

Whether or not you’re currently on the market, log in (using your Kerberos credentials) and take a look around—this is one of those things where the earlier you get started the better.
