CU Active

At CU Active, we believe in the boundless potential of an active mind, heart, body, and soul. Thus, we cultivate an ecosystem where being 'active' transcends all boundaries - inspiring students to sculpt their college journey into an unforgettable adventure. By continuously evolving, actively weaving oneself into community, and engaging with the natural wonders of the world, CU Active students become ambassadors for living well.

Students training at CU Active


You’re sharpening your mind when pursuing your college degree, but what about your body? CU Active promotes the holistic wellness of each and every student. Comprehensive wellness-based programming by our Peer Mentor Coordinators and the operation of our residential fitness center are just two of the tools CU Active utilizes to ensure Concordia University Irvine students experience well-rounded growth during your time here.

Intramural soccer


Sometimes the best remedy for long hours in the classroom is to blow off steam on the field. Whether you’re looking for that Victory Royale, or holding up a trophy at the end of a season, CU Active and their partners work to provide you a necessary break from your studies. You’ve worked hard, now it’s time to play hard.
