New Wellness Center Is Open

By Frantasia Walden
Cardio and weight equipment at the Health and Wellness Center was made available for student and faculty use on Friday, Sept. 28 at 12 p.m. The regular hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Students and staff have access to all equipment as well as locker rooms, where they have the option of using their own locks to secure valuables.The new facility features three floors. On the upper floor is cardio equipment and an indoor track. The lower floor contains basketball courts, a dance studio, and a rock climbing wall, which is not yet available for use. The
mid-level houses Health Services and other offices.

Antibacterial wipes are available to keep the equipment sanitary after each use.

The equipment was set-up for about two weeks before it was available for the entire campus to use. Students spent the time anticipating the opening of the facility.

“Finally we get to use the equipment, ” said Ashley Redding.

Now that it is available for everyone, staff members hope that students will take care of it and take advantage of the availability of the new equipment.

Students plan to make use of this opportunity to stay in shape or get in shape, as well as relieve stress.

Senior, Cha’bria Carter said “I plan to be working out every day when I have free time.”
