UIUC's and Cincinnati's were both enormous, gorgeous, brand-new and totally bad-ass.

I went to GW undergrad, and their school gym is really nice.

I go to NYU Law, and their school gym, despite having twice the students, not so much...

Northwestern gives you access to a sweet classy health club-spa and all...for...drumroll...150 bucks a year. The real members pay 100 a month or something. It's better than a school gym from what I've seen and a pretty sweet deal for being in the middle of the city.

Ohio State just built a brand new BEAUTIFUL facility 2 years ago. It is almost 600,000 square feet (I think they said it's the biggest rec center in the country). It has anything and everything. Rows and rows of treadmills, EFX machines, weight rooms, etc...

Isn't GULC's fitness center run by the MySportsClubs group. I believe it is.

BU's is also very good.

usually athletics (or even separate sports at the major sports schools) have their own gyms. You won't be going to the gym with Terrelle Pryor if you're at the OSU law school unless you're a grad assistant for the football program or something.

+1 to what Liz said: Georgetown FTW. The Law Center (separate campus) has its own three-story monster http://www.law.georgetown.edu/fitness/. Every treadmill has a TV built in; awesome ginormous swimmy pool; free spin, pilates, "boot camp", and other classes; free from main campus pillagers... How do you beat that?

In the case of OSU it is probably the huge student body, which is like 60,000. I went to ASU and they have a huge student center/gym too. The football team gets their own gym.

With 2,000 plus students, you should fear intra-pillagers.

Does UICU have a lazy river? if not, this topic is over because BU takes the cake. I would be floating that mug ALL day.
