More About This Awesome Event!

The inaugural Rock The Rec event took place in August of 2007, one year after the Cleveland State Recreation Center first opened it's doors. Since then, Rock The Rec has become our most successful flagship event, growing in popularity each year. In fact, last year's event boasted our highest single-day/single event attendance record to date with daily attendance reaching nearly 2,100 people!

Whether you're new to Cleveland State or a veteran viking, This event is a wonderful way to kick off the new year, make some new friends, and see what Campus Recreation Services is all about - while having a lot of fun! There are tons of opportunities to play games, participate on the inflatables throughout the facility, scope out some awesome demos and have a great evening with your friends. You do not want to miss it!
