The Student Recreation Center has become the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center (VRWC). The new name reflects the combining of Recreation and Wellness that serves our entire community. This combination and focus is consistent with the latest trends within Higher Education and, with our state of the art new facility, positions Vanderbilt as a national leader in this area.
