Pros

-Free stuff! There are so many events that Rec Sports hosts with a lot of free things, which is nice.
-Jennifer Siu (Associate Director) bakes all of the time, which is great.
-Being in an environment that is service and student-centered.

Cons

-Sometimes communication amongst administration and Student Affairs and Athletics can be questionable. Also, the distribution of office responsibilities is a bit rocky.
