Special Events

Every semester we offer different events that bring something new and fun to your time at MSU! 

Haunted Trail

Every year students get to experience the Foster Recreation Center as it transforms into a Haunted Trail. Join us and hundreds of your fellow students every October to enjoy a good scare followed by snacks, dancing, and more!



Glow Climb

Climb in the dark with colored dancing lights with other patrons! Solve routes and boulder while dancing and eating free food. Glow climb is an annual event that happens at the beginning of every Fall semester, and it is sure to please! Come see what Outdoor Adventures has to offer!



Family Weekend is an excellent reason to visit campus, reconnect with your student, meet other families and show your Missouri State pride. It is also the perfect way to allow your family/friends to experience the Foster Recreation Center! Guests are welcome to use workout equipment, go rock climbing, attend BearFit classes, enjoy a Dive-In Movie at the pool, & more!




RecFest is Campus Recreation's welcome back carnival for new and returning students held at the beginning of each Spring semester! Let us show you everything that our facility offers and participate in events and games for the chance to win a variety of prizes!




Help the Foster Recreation Center ring in the Spring by going on an egg hunt in the facility! With over 200 hidden eggs, you are bound to find one. Each egg holds a special ticket; turn it in to redeem your prize. One lucky person will pick the "GOLDEN TICKET" egg, which offers a grand prize! Only one egg per person, so make sure to hunt quickly!



Wellness Expo
The annual Wellness Expo gives students the opportunity to recognize where campus departments fit within the 8 dimensions of wellness. Departments from all over campus come together to inform Missouri State students and members of the Foster Recreation Center.
