Involvement in the Collegiate Recovery Community provides the opportunity to take part in many recreational events and activities in addition to skill-building and other educational programs, ongoing throughout the academic year. These include weekly meetings, movie nights, camping trips, barbecues, personal/professional development seminars, Adventure Leadership retreats through the Department of Recreational Sports, and more. A unique aspect of the CRC program is the opportunity for its members to provide/ receive mentorship to/from their peers in recovery, as a source of understanding and support during the recovery process. Mentorship and fellowship are some of the most cited, most studied practices for people in recovery, and are linked to longer periods of sobriety.
The CRC Clubhouse is located in McNary Hall, Room 125. Access is from the north side of the building, on Southwest Jefferson. Entrance is a glass door by the bike racks. Look for a sign that says "Oregon State CRC Clubhouse." (You cannot access the CRC Clubhouse from within McNary Hall.)
CRC members have access to the Clubhouse to study, drink coffee, socialize, or just hang out – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It also serves as a private venue in which scheduled meetings and other CRC programming are held. All members are asked to follow the Clubhouse rules (PDF).
For students interested in becoming members or learning more about the CRC, the Clubhouse will be open to the public for free coffee hours on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., and Fridays from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., throughout Winter Term.
