Your Guide to Summer Membership

The end of the school year is fast approaching and you’re looking forward to warmer weather and freedom! Your daydreams about lounging beside Truman’s Pond all summer have started to consume your thoughts, but wait! Do you know where your MizzouRec membership stands for the summer?

BUT FIRST, HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT DATES TO KEEP IN MIND:

  • The facility will be CLOSED July 29-Aug. 12 for maintenance.
  • The facility will be CLOSED May 26-28 for Memorial Day.
  • The facility will be CLOSED July 4 for the Fourth of July.
  • The West Entrance will be CLOSED May 12-Aug. 19 and facility access will be through the Southeast Entrance ONLY.

WHAT IF I’M A STUDENT WHO IS TAKING CLASSES AT MIZZOU THIS SUMMER? CAN I STILL USE THE REC?

Absolutely! If you are enrolled in more than 5 on campus (online classes don’t count) credit hours this summer, you will automatically be assessed the summer Recreation Activity & Facility Fee of $75.38. Students not automatically assessed and enrolled can opt- in to the same fee. Just stop by the Member & Guest Services Desk to add the fee to your account any time after May 1st.

BUT WHAT IF I’M NOT TAKING ANY CLASSES THIS SUMMER? WHAT IS LIFE WITHOUT THE PUMP ROOM AND THE GROTTO?!

Whoa, there. We want to see you just as much as you want to see us. For those that are not enrolled in any summer classes, you can pay a weekly intersession fee if you were enrolled in this past spring semester and are enrolled in the fall. The fee will be $10 plus tax a week, granting access Monday – Sunday. Even if you purchase the pass on a Wednesday, you will still be charged $10 for the week. But hey! That’s still less expensive than buying a daily entry pass ($11 plus tax)!

Students must be enrolled in Spring and Fall courses to be allowed to pay the weekly fee.  If not enrolled in any Summer courses or you were not enrolled in both Spring and Fall courses, the only option is to sign up for an MUAA or Recent Grad membership (see below).

You can buy weekly intersession passes a week at a time or you can buy them in bulk. We encourage you to buy as many weeks as possible up front to avoid possible long lines. Payment for the weekly intersession fee is with your credit/debit card or with a check.

*Unfortunately, incoming freshmen or transfer students will not be able to use the facility until the fall session starts (August 13) unless they are enrolled in summer classes.

PHEW! BUT WHEN CAN I START BUYING WEEKLY INTERSESSION PASSES?

The last day for regular spring session student access is May 13. BUT you can begin purchase your summer weeks of access as soon as May 1! Just stop by Member and Guest Services during all facility hours to purchase your weekly intersession passes. Make sure to leave some time in your schedule! The line tends to get long during the first several weeks.

WHAT IF I’M GOING TO BE AWAY FOR THE SUMMER?

Then nothing that was just said will have a huge impact on you. Just be sure to hurry back in on August 13 when access begins for fall semester students. We can’t wait to see you all back here! It’s just not the same without you. *sniffle sniffle*

Fall access starts August 13!

WHAT IF I’M A RECENT GRAD?

If you purchased a grad pack from the Mizzou Store, which included your first year membership of the Mizzou Alumni Association, you can get your membership for $39 per month (two months minimum). If you didn’t purchase a grad pack, you’ll pay a $40 Mizzou Alumni Association fee, and then your MizzouRec membership will be $39 per month (two months minimum). You can pay your Mizzou Alumni Association fee and your membership fee at MizzouRec.


Have a great summer, Mizzou!

Team Mizzou Profile: Lizzy Dreifuss

Lizzy Dreifuss

Lizzy has worked at MizzouRec for nearly 4 years now. She knows this place like the back of her hand to say the least! Lizzy is majoring in Human Development and Family Sciences and plans to attend graduate school here at the University of Missouri in the fall! She loves the beach and above all, breakfast food.

 

Why is MizzouRec important to you?

“MizzouRec has not only given me life long skills professionally, but through my time working for the rec I have gained and irreplaceable family through Team Mizzou (MizzouRec employees). I have been challenged here personally, physically and mentally in so many ways that will benefit my college career and life in general!”

 

What does Lizzy do at MizzouRec?

Lizzy works as a zouLIFE lead so she is the one to go to for all things zouLIFE. She makes sure zouLIFE Spa is running smoothy and members leave relaxed and happy. She is also on Selection Team which means she conducts interviews with potential Team Mizzou members to see if they are the right fit for the job. We are not done yet, she is also a bronzing specialist and does a fantastic job making people look perfectly sun kissed. Finally, Lizzy also is a part of TMAC (Team Mizzou Advisory Committee) where her, along with members from every area of Team Mizzou, discuss ways to enhance Team Mizzou and the Rec.

 

What about zouLIFE is important to you?

“Students well-being is very important. zouLIFE is a relaxing place where people can come to pamper themselves. This helps relieve stress from school and life in general. Another favorite part of zouLIFE is personal training which helps students get more involved in their own fitness journey and I love that we are able to offer that to students.”

 

It’s hard to imagine Lizzy having any free time with four different positions at MizzouRec. She says “it’s funny because people say I live at the Rec, but when I am not here I am binge watching Netflix shows or just hanging with friends.” We are thankful to have Team Mizzou members like Lizzy making MizzouRec a great place for everybody!
