What's in it
The facility will include a two-court gymnasium, a 1/11 mile, three lane running track, a synthetic floor gymnasium equipped with dasher boards for floor hockey and indoor soccer, a large cardiovascular and weight training facility, 2 multi-purpose group fitness suites, an aquatic complex including a lap pool and whirlpool spa, new locker rooms, a bouldering wall, and working space for student clubs and intramurals. The facility will also include a retail with a large lounge area. The Outdoor Program offices and gear rental will welcome you into the building on the ground floor. The facility will be open 7 days a week for recreational use.
This will be a place to make new friends, meet old ones, and release some of that tension you get from reading all those textbooks. You will get a state-of-the-art recreational facility, dedicated to recreational use only - the facility would be a unified home for the intramural, rec club, aquatic, fitness and activity, and outdoor programs. Additionally, you will get the staff to support these programs which will include group fitness classes, expanded intramurals (so you can find people to play with), more aquatics programming, and a place to really learn how to get outdoors.
