UMD RecWell believes being physically active is a crucial component of success in and out of the classroom, and are dedicated to creating a culture of wellness where all members of the university community thrive. They facilitate physical activities which provide better sleep, improved mood,  a stronger immune system, social connection with others, and more energy. Activity also helps students manage stress and symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition to these wellness benefits, being active also helps students achieve academic success by boosting mental focus, attention and alertness, and priming the brain for learning. RecWell invites every member of the university community to discover their inner Active Terp and find a physical activity they enjoy doing. Recreation is for everyone and there is something for everyone at RecWell.
