Department of Recreation & Operations
The Department of Recreation and Operations (Rec & Ops) oversees the University Intramural Sports programs and recreation initiatives and runs the day-to-day operations of the Davis Student Commons and River House.  Rec & Ops is the largest on-campus student employer with students hired as Supervisors and Student Assistants in the Davis Student Commons and River House; as Intramural Officials and Coordinators for our Intramural Sports programs; as Group Exercise Instructors in the Nimnicht Fitness Center; and as Lifeguards ensuring the safety of swimmers at the Lonnie Wurn Pool. 
 
Recreation programs within the department include Intramural Sports, Group Exercise classes, and the Open Rec equipment check-out program located in the River House. 
 
The Davis Student Commons is the campus hub of student life at JU.  The professional staff for the Student Solutions Center, Student Involvement (Greek Life, JUSA, Student Activities, and Student Organizations), Varsity Sports, the Career Development Center, and the Dean of Students are all found here.  The Davis Student Commons is also home to the Nimnicht Fitness Center, Buccaneer Game Room, a student study lounge, Ross Theater, Usen Auditorium, and multiple meeting rooms.  Chick-fil-A and Nellie’s To Go are the available dining options on-site.
 
The River House is a new on-campus hotspot for both students and the greater JU community.  It features state of the art conference rooms and meeting spaces, outdoor terraces, indoor seating lounges, multiple televisions with satellite broadcast service, and an on-campus dining option.  The Lonnie Wurn Pool and the sand volleyball courts are located adjacent to the River House.  The River House management staff, as well as the Intramural and Open Rec programs, operate out of this facility.
