The Standard Process Student Activity Center serves as both the social hub of the campus as well as a state-of-the-art training center for Parker University students, faculty, staff and alumni. A 30,000 square foot facility, the Activity Center has been a part of the Parker landscape since 1992 and currently hosts sporting events, assemblies, lecturers, exercise classes, and meetings for a wide-range of campus organizations. The facility is staffed by a full-time Director of Athletics and Recreation, an Assistant Activity Center Director and as many as 15 student workers.
The two-story complex, the Activity Center welcomes more than 250 students daily to a first floor that includes a computer center, lounge, treadmills, elliptical machines, exercise bicycles, state-of-the-art weight room, full-length basketball court, and two volleyball courts. Upstairs, the center features four ping-pong tables, three pool tables, two foosball tables, a game-room for X-Box 360 and Nintendo Wii, an exercise room with an overhead projector to display many available exercise videos, and locker rooms for both men and women equipped with saunas. The center is dotted with a dozen high definition flat-screen televisions connected to a satellite feed as well as action posters of Parker students competing in all Chiro Games sports.
With a focus on overall good health and wellness, the Activity Center caters to exercise classes, including burst training, P90X, yoga, martial arts, dance and aerobics.
The Activity Center also houses the headquarters for both athletics and recreation for the University. The Office of Athletics and Recreation fields 13 teams that compete in the annual Chiro Games (against the other 16 Chiropractic Colleges coast to coast) with teams in flag football, tennis, distance running, ice hockey, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, swimming, softball, golf, table tennis, ultimate frisbee and beach volleyball.
