Sports & Recreation

It's a good thing there are so many recreational opportunities on and off campus—because our Bears don't hibernate.

Greeley offers miles of bike paths, acres of parks and recreational options from swimming to skateboarding. With UNC's Division I athletics, club and intramural sports and Outdoor Pursuits, there's no shortage of outdoor activities to watch or participate in.
