Does your college or university have multipurpose courts in place? If not, there’s a good chance that many of your students and professors aren’t getting enough exercise on a regular basis. Multipurpose courts provide students and professors with somewhere to go when they want to get a good workout in. And that’s far from the only advantage students and professors will enjoy when colleges and universities install multipurpose courts. Here are some of the other benefits.
Gives students and professors a space to socialize.
All colleges and universities should provide students and professors with spaces to socialize on campus. It creates a more vibrant atmosphere and makes people feel more connected. Multipurpose courts can be designed to bring people together and allow them to have a good time outside of the classroom.
Improves the health of students and professors.
Most colleges and universities spend a lot of money treating students who have gotten sick on campus. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to prevent them from getting sick in the first place? Multipurpose courts can be used to make students healthier, which will save colleges and universities money in the long run since they won’t have to spend as much of it on illness management.
Helps improve grades.
Some studies have suggested that students perform significantly better in the classroom when colleges and universities have multipurpose courts on campus. After a major renovation was done to the recreational center at Purdue University recently, which resulted in more students using it to work out, a study found that students who visited the rec center regularly had a GPA that was 0.2 points higher than students who didn’t visit it at all.
