Recreational Life


The Rhodes Perrin Recreation Center philosophy is to offer a variety of programs, which encourage all participants to develop in the areas of personal values, physical fitness and education. This is accomplished by providing a clean and safe environment, sound teaching methods, and by encouraging all participants to do their best. The Rhodes Perrin Recreation Center is run with an emphasis on quality and observes all recommendations and guidelines set forth by various gold standards in the recreation, intramurals and fitness industries.  

We work with our staff to provide them the training, understanding and experience that will allow them to assist anyone in our facility. We work closely with the Exercise and Sport Sciences Department to give interns experience in the recreation, sports and fitness fields.

On Belay

At LCU we venture outside the box, or shipping container in our case! In Fall 2009 LCU added a Rock Wall to our Recreation Center. We have added Rock Climbing Classes through our Exercise and Sport Sciences Department.

Our Rock Wall Green Project was made possible by taking two shipping containers and stacking them end to end. This allows climbers to climb almost to the top of the field house.

If you don't want to climb the rock wall, take the stairs! Inside the rock wall are stairs that lead all the way to the top. At the top of the stairs you can exit and repel down the side of the wall.

Belay On!

There are several options to climbing:

  • Bouldering
  • Tier 1 Certification - Including auto belay climbing and manual belay
  • Tier 2 Certification - Including lead climbing and repelling
  • Annual recertification is required for any climbers, for any currently certifications held.
  • For more information on certification classes, please contact the Welcome Desk at 806.720.7860.

*Fees go towards equipment replacement. Certification classes will be offered.
