Our excellent trainers and staff strive to provide top quality training and service to Campus Rec. This past spring, the Rec received multiple awards at the American Red Cross Recognition event that took place in Denver. Aquatics coordinator Nick Pfeifer and his Red Cross staff were awarded a Top Training Provider during 2018, placing third overall among all certified organizations in the state of Colorado!

“We certified a total of 389 people in 2018, which was the most among all colleges and universities in the state of Colorado,” says Nick. He elaborated that the only places in Colorado that certified more people through Red Cross programming were Denver Parks and Rec and the City of Longmont. This also means the Rec places first among campus recreation departments in Colorado. Nick and his team have shown immense dedication to the program and we are thrilled that their efforts have been formally recognized.

Campus Rec proudly offers Red Cross certification classes including First Aid, Lifeguarding, and CPR within the Aquatics program. These classes result in full certifications for the participants who attend and successfully pass all course components.  The American Red Cross classes are open to CSU students with a current Rec membership.
