Visit the Candler Physical Education Center if you have time in the afternoon.
According to Workout-X.com, physical activity triggers the release of endorphins that can reduce the stress and anxiety of college.
With that in mind, Candler has options to fulfill those needs.
Students, with the required student ID, can enjoy the benefits of racquetball courts, conditioning room, gymnasium basketball and a swimming pool.
Candler also offers a computer lab.
“The conditioning room, pick-up basketball and the swimming pool are pretty popular,” Bill Richardson, kinesiology and dance chair, said.
Students cannot use the facilities during classes.
The gym is open from 3:15 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 2 p.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 2 p.m.-3 p.m. Friday.
The swimming pool is open from 1 p.m.-3:45 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 3 p.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
The conditioning room is open from 3:15 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, 3 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Friday.
The conditioning room contains machines for cardio and weight lifting.
Racquetball court and computer lab hours will be announced at a later date.
Training devices are available at the pool, but equipment must be brought to the basketball and racquetball courts.
Lockers and dressing rooms are available, but locks and towels are not provided.
The department website says hours may change.
