Will Sweat for Free | Letter to the Editor

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Recently the Student Life and Wellness Center raised their minimum number of credits to have free access to the facilities to be 10 credit hours. This makes sense during the normal school year but during the summer when the classes are shortened and 6 credits feels like a full-load I find this odd. The other disappointing thing as a starving student is that it costs $25 no matter what point of the summer you sign up. It seems like it would be easy enough to prorate the charges so that if you are only using it for the last couple of weeks you could just pay for those weeks. While the price is reasonable it definitely deterred me from using the gym this summer, particularly because I was only in classes the second block and tried to sign up at that time. Just a suggestion from a student wishing to be more in shape.
