About Special Events

Our special events are created with our participants in mind. From our Costume Dodgeball Tournament every October to our 5K Walk, Run and Roll in the Spring, these events are sure to bring participants together to help create long lasting friendships and bonds. Whether you participate with your friends or make new ones, we cannot wait to see you at our next special event.


Rec the Night

At the start of the Fall semester every year as part of SF State's GatorFest, we welcome all incoming students both Freshman and Transfer Students (or returning students, all are welcome) to our facility and join us for a night of fun games and activities while you learn about what Campus Rec is all about. Climbing Wall? We got it. Jobs? Everyone gets a job! Join us next Fall for our next event and see what we have to offer.

Costume Dodgeball Tournament

Spooky season brings with it the smell of pumpkin spice in the air, the sight of carved gourds and dodgeball? Yup, our costume dodgeball tournament is our favorite spooky season tradition. We pit teams of 10 against each other while wearing their favorite halloween costumes all to see who will reign the Costume Dodgeball Champions. Think you have what it takes to beat the best? Join us next Fall to try your luck, you'll be in for a ghoulishly bone-chilling fright of a good time.
