UMD Named one of the “50 Fittest Colleges in America”

We already know that UMD has tons of Terps dedicated to their wellness by being physically active – and now the rest of the country does, too. We’re beaming with TERP PRIDE over here!


For the 2nd year in a row, the Active Times named The University of Maryland at College Park one of the “50 Fittest Colleges in America.” //  See the 2013 list >>

Listed at #35, here’s what they had to see about the recreational opportunities here at Maryland:

This university’s campus exudes all the important components of a healthy and fit lifestyle. From its state of the art Eppley Recreation Center (equipped with racquetball courts, an indoor track, a swimming pool and a full-fledged gym, just to name a few highlights) to the campus bike shop and an adventure program that offers students regular opportunities to partake in hiking, rock climbing and kayaking trips, it’s clear that College Park is adamant about encouraging an active life on campus. Not to mention, the school is also home to one of the country’s most active varsity sports programs; ranked at number 39 on College Prowler’s list for this category.
