Spread across three stories and 110,000 square feet, the Cleveland State University Recreation Center enables students, faculty, and members of the community to tailor custom workouts and play a variety of sports.

Winter's icy grip is harshest in the water, yet the intrepid souls who sign up for the Cleveland Polar Plunge thumb their noses at Father Winter for a good cause and, of course, a party. Each pays for the privilege to dive into the frigid shallows of Lake Eerie, their money and that of the event's sponsors going to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Team Fox, the Parkinson's disease research organization founded by Michael J. Fox. After the event, each cold-weather diver warms up with a knit cap and happy-hour festivities with drinks and food at Liquid where Masters of Disasters will play a live set.
Red Oak Camp has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a barn and boys' summer retreat in 1947. Today, the staff organize old-fashioned, weeklong outdoor adventures that help boys and girls—in age groups ranging from 7 to 14—develop cooperation and leadership skills and an appreciation for nature. At the original Red Barn boys’ day camp, counselors watch over campers as they fish and canoe in a pond, practice their aim on an archery range, test their coordination on a low-ropes course, and stockpile candy bars for the winter. At the equestrian center, girls learn the basics of horsemanship and barn management and frolic in their own playing fields and activities center. Older children may leave camp for backpacking trips, and even the younger visitors may embark on flora- and fauna-identification hikes or pitch tents and sleep under the stars.
