Wellness Center and Natatorium

To keep off the dreaded freshman fifteen, we offer many activities for students to challenge themselves physically. Equipment in the Wellness Center includes a variety of Nautilus cardiovascular and weight machines. We also have a jacuzzi and sauna available. Our indoor, 25-yard, heated swimming pool is the place to go for year-round aquatic exercise. Students can take classes in water aerobics or a variety of swimming classes. 


For students who enjoy a good game of basketball or some other sport, getting involved in the intramurals program can give them another healthy free time experience.
