- The design for the entire recreation complex was influenced by the desire to create a park-like setting.
- The RAC is located inside the 70 acre M.C. Anderson Park, which is comprised of lighted playing fields, walking trails, high & low challenge course, large pavilion and amphitheater.
- The RAC is home to Campus Recreation & Intramurals (CRI), which offers progressive programs from its seven program areas including Aquatics, Club Sports, Fitness, Informal Recreation, Intramural Sports, Southern Adventures and the University Wellness Program.
