  •  Profile: Pat Malley Fitness and Recreation Center

    Santa Clara's Pat Malley Fitness and Recreation Center affords students, faculty and staff the chance to balance out rigorous mental workouts with physical ones. The 45,000 square foot space, hosting a weight room, multipurpose studio, basketball courts and an outdoor aquatic facility, was definitely a factor when Santa Clara was named on of the Fittest Colleges in America by Men's Fitness Magazine in October 2006. But Campus Recreation and the Malley staff may be just as committed to sustainability as they are to your fitness.
