At Case Western Reserve, we believe that exercise benefits body and mind. Not only do we offer varsity, club, and intramural sports, but also multiple athletic centers full of cardio equipment and weights—and, in one of them, you’ll find two indoor pools, a track, spaces that can serve as basketball or tennis courts, a rock climbing wall and more.
