    If you have to ask, you’ll never know. Various aspects of campus life feel this way to college students, whether we’ve been here a week, a year or three years.

    Luckily, when it comes to getting involved on campus, clubs and organizations always stay on the lookout for new members and constantly spread their info out to the UA world in hopes of finding their next leaders.

    On the first day of school, UA Campus Recreation puts on the biggest display they have to offer with Meet Me at the Rec 2016.

    In addition to their own program, hosts of a multitude of clubs, sports and businesses that call the UA home will join as well.

    Monday, from 6-8 p.m., there will be all sorts of free food, giveaways, games and information for all students who make their way to the William David Sitton Field, on the far end of Campus Recreation on Sixth Street.

    Just as the day starts to cool off a bit and your head has stopped whirling from your first taste of syllabi, come to this event to enjoy some loud music and munchies and meet some cool people from all over.

    Michele Schwitzky, outreach coordinator at Campus Recreation, wants to get as many students, new and old, out to come by the Rec Center this year.

    “A lot of people don’t know, unfortunately, how many different opportunities there are for anyone and everyone here, no matter how busy or how inexperienced,” Schwitzky said.

    Every student has unique interests and each individual needs options to get involved and get active.

    You just have to ask and Meet Me at the Rec will bring those social outlets to you.

    Who knew the Rec Center even offered guitar lessons?

    Campus Recreation wants everyone to come out and learn about the affordable choices for fitness classes that can serve as a less-intimidating experience for first-timers rather than trying to figure out what to do in the gym.

    “Free Group Fitness Week is this week, and we don’t want anyone to miss out,” fitness coordinator Jenny Kuzmic said.

    Along with representatives from fitness classes, there will be people there to help you get off campus with groups like Outdoor Adventures and the UA Challenge Course program that offers high- and low-ropes courses to UA students.

    Maybe all you will get from stopping by is a lot of brochures and a picture of one of our athletic teams, but there is no doubt the event is worth the short trip over to the Rec Center.

    Who knows, you might be the next star of the club ballroom dance team.
