As the world’s largest Christian university, there is no shortage of quality educational and spiritual resources designed to develop a healthy mind and spirit at Liberty University. But the school is also going to great lengths to offer a variety of resources to students, staff, and the community specifically designed to encourage physical health and wellness.

“We do as much if not more than anybody in the region to promote an overall healthy lifestyle,” said Lee Beaumont, Liberty’s vice president for Auxiliary Services. “When people are physically fit they are more productive members of society. Liberty recognizes that and its bountiful resources give people multiple options to pursue that goal.”

Students are offered an eclectic blend of activities, including extensive intramural and Club Sports programs, top-notch fitness facilities, and outdoor excursions that allow students to participate in activities such as rock climbing, whitewater rafting, canoeing, and kayaking.
