    Fitness and Recreation


    Quality education includes classroom and co-curricular opportunities. We provide those opportunities through the Samuel H. Archer Hall Recreation and Fitness Center.

    Inside the 53,808 square foot facility, students have access to a swimming pool, gymnasium, locker rooms, TV lounge, news programming, a game room, and conference rooms.

    Archer Hall is also home to the Student Government Association, Office of Student Life and Planning, Maroon Tiger news publication, and Torch yearbook.

    Here, fitness, wellness, intramural as well as recreational programs and activities are provided for the students, alumni, faculty, staff, their spouses, and children. Archer Hall offers a unique environment for students to interact with other members of the broader Morehouse College community.
