Recreational Sports Updates - IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT8

Due to the concern over preventing the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Recreation Center will be closed for work-out purposes indefinitely.

The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and campus community warrants the closing of the facility for work-out purposes.

All group fitness classes are canceled as well as intramural sports events and club sport activities. The pool is closed through the summer due to the ventilation/roof replacement project.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we take the necessary precautions for ensuring the health and well-being of our students and facility members in navigating the Covid-19 virus pandemic.
