Sports & Recreation
Spokane experiences a four-season climate. Spring in Spokane is beautiful, with many flowers blooming and the sun shining. Spokane is known as the lilac city, and a short spring walk about one of the many parks proves it. Summers are hot during the day but cool at night. Rainy days during the summer are almost unheard of, which means plenty of time to enjoy one of the many lakes and rivers in the area. Fall is usually still nice, with a little more rain. Apples, pumpkins, squash and other autumn fruits and vegetables make it a season to enjoy. Winter brings snow, which means ample opportunity to check out some of the great skiing in the area. Every season brings something different to the Spokane area. The sky is the limit for sports and recreation in Spokane.
During their leisure time, students can participate in any number of activities, from down-hill skiing to great hiking to whitewater rafting. Students also play a lot of sports together, from soccer on the weekends to tennis, basketball and swimming on campus during the week. Great shopping and dining can also be found in downtown Spokane.
