Being a college student usually means juggling many different responsibilities. And making time for personal fitness sometimes doesn’t make it to the top of the “to-do list.”
But this college has opened a few options for students that can make getting to the gym easier. The kinesiology department is opening recreational hours for students starting Monday.
The gymnasium and conditioning rooms are among facilities open to students.
Recreational hours for the gym are 2:15 p.m.-4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 3 p.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
The conditioning room, which includes cardio equipment, is open 2:10 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 3 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
The swimming pool also will be open for students beginning Monday. The hours for the pool will be posted inside the gymnasium that day.
Chair Bill Richardson expressed the importance of students taking advantage of these options for physical fitness.
“It clears the cobwebs out of your mind,” he said. “Good health and physical activities equal mental health, which helps with academics.”
