Campus Recreation

Division of Student Life and Enrollment



The Wayne G. Basler Center for Physical Activity (CPA) is a 120,000 square foot facility that was built by, and currently operates on, student activity fees and is staffed by ETSU student employees. The building, which originally opened in 2002 as the Center for Physical Activity, was renamed in 2006 in recognition of Mr. Basler. Mr. Basler has been a generous contributor to ETSU as well as the Campus Recreation program over the years. The Basler Challenge Course located adjacent to the CPA was made possible by a donation from Mr. Basler.

In 2011 plans were made for an expansion of the CPA to add additional diverse facilities and resources. The project was completed in August 2013. The CPA expansion includes a volleyball/indoor soccer/basketball court, a martial arts studio, a yoga studio, a change room, an extra 4,000 square foot area for the weight room, and a cycling studio.
