Kerong Kelly

Effective starting in January 2013, the hours of the University’s field house and athletic facilities will be extended. This resolution does not only include extended hours, it also entails more fitness programming and activities. The athletic center will be open until 1 a.m. five days per week (Tuesday-Saturday).

“I am very excited. It will be a really nice alternative on Fridays and Saturdays to just go to the gym and play sports with friends,” Polly Englot ’16 said.

This common sentiment was the buzz around campus after the news was announced.

“This change has been a long time coming. People have been asking for a while because if you’re not an athlete, you take what hours you can find,” Dan Fritz ’13 said.

The following facilities will be open during in the extended hours: Krebs Family Fitness Center, Davis Gymnasium, Gerhard Fieldhouse, the Group Fitness Studio and Kinney Natatorium.

“I’m excited to see what new intramural leagues they add,” Claire Kawoczka ’16 said.
