Howard Taylor Endowment for Student Success

The CoRec serves as the second largest employer of students on Purdue's campus with over 700 students employeed annually. Our employment positions provide opportunities for students to develop leadership, communication, conflict resolution, and critical thinking skills while working in a team. And we’re more than just their employer. We’re an ambassador for their success inside and outside of the CoRec. Our recently renamed Howard Taylor Endowment for Student Success supports these student employees through professional development opportunities and academic scholarships while honoring the legacy of our recently retired Director, Howard Taylor, and his committment to student success inside and outside of the CoRec. 

Northwest Recreation Playfield Project

Due to the expansion and development along HWY 26 west of campus, many of the playfields used by RecWell will no longer be available. To offset the loss of these fields, RecWell is building new fields at the north east intersection of McCormick Road and Cherry Lane. This project is scheduled to be completed by the Spring of 2018. This site will provide lighted Club Sports space for the Men’s and Women’s Rugby Clubs, the Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Clubs, the Men’s and Women’s Soccer Clubs, the Men’s and Women’s Ultimate Clubs, the Cricket Club, and many other recreational programs. These will be high quality fields with in-ground drainage and irrigation. This is a vital field project to serve the outdoor recreational needs of thousands of students. Research shows that students who participate in activities like these are more likely to be successful and satisfied with their college experience.
