About Us

Here at Purdue RecWell, we aren’t here to just get people in shape. We’re here to shape people. And to shape a community. We’re a team on a mission to build minds as well as bodies. A team who believes in helping people thrive in life. We have no interest in being average and we’re not afraid to fail. We believe in making wellness a priority. And it shows. We believe human capital is our most important asset. And worth the investment. We are committed to inclusion, we believe that diversity inspires creativity and that every Boilermaker should have access to recreation and wellness.

We are proud of what we do and are always looking for talented people to enrich our work and our team. We believe that we can do more for our campus communities than we thought possible and impact more lives than we ever imagined as a unified campus recreation team, rather than individual department units.

Experiences that make a difference in Boilermaker lives.
