Campus Rec Seal


Tennessee Tech University Campus Recreation supports the concept of student employment. In addition to earning money to help cover educational cost and living expenses, students can gain significant experience and life-long skills from their work. In support of that concept, Campus Recreation strives to provide job opportunities through the Fitness Center and Intramural Sports that require various levels of responsibility, experience, and skill. Student employees are not entitled to university benefits.
