Sports are big among students at the Florham Campus and the campus’ Ferguson Recreation Center is home base. The center’s convenient hours make it easy for you to get involved on a team — or to just stay fit through a regular program of exercise. The center’s certified training staff can help you develop a personalized fitness program. Classes include step aerobics, aerobics and ballet. If you’re interested in using weights as part of your program, you’ll want to take advantage of the center’s all-new Cybex equipment.
There are two racquetball courts in the center. FDU even provides the equipment, free of charge — all you need do is reserve court time! The center includes a three-court basketball arena that’s ideal for concerts as well as games. Suspended around the courts is an eighth-mile long running track. There’s even a snack bar that operates during games and special events.
For water-lovers, there’s a 25-yard, eight-lane competition swimming pool in the Recreation Center. It’s the site of occasional “Dive-In Movies,” too, where students enjoy films from their floats in the pool.
Our 19 varsity athletic teams are members the challenging Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC), the nation’s oldest and largest Division III athletic conference. The Devils also compete in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).
In 2014, the Devils Women’s Basketball team took their perfect season record into the NCAA Division III championships and brought it out the other side still perfect: 33 wins, no losses, and NCAA Champions.
