Update on Student Rec Center

February 15, 2024

Dear Campus Community,

After the significant damage on Sunday to the Student Recreation Center, we know that you have questions. Here are the answers we have so far.

The building itself. We have consulted with structural engineers who have examined the rec center and determined that the remaining portions of the building can be used while the weight room is repaired.

Clean up. The center will remain closed this week and next week to give us time to clean up debris, take steps to mitigate damage and move equipment around so we can offer as many services and programs as possible in the space we can use.

Reopening. The date we will reopen the rec center is Monday, Feb. 26, with the regular days and hours. If that date needs to change, we will communicate that.

Services available. Obviously, we will not be able to offer every service immediately. We will, however, be able to offer all our cardio equipment and some of our strength-training equipment as well as use the gym, fitness studio and restrooms. The weight room will be offline. We are unsure when it will be available.

As we move through the coming weeks, our goal is to get you working out again.

We thank you for your support.

With Hornet Pride,

Mike Wise
