Recreation center expands hours for fall

Pool closed as department seeks student lifeguard; position pays $13.50/hour

Students looking to use the recreation and fitness facilities on Heritage Campus will have more options this year as the facilities remain open into the evening. 

“This is the first semester within the past few years that the recreation and fitness facilities have been fully open,” said Kristy Urbick, intramurals director. “It will be open later on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 6:30 p.m., which has students pretty excited about the change.”

The Heritage Campus features an eighth-mile track, gymnasium, racquetball courts, tennis courts and an indoor pool. The pool is closed right now as the department seeks a lifeguard.

Urbick said that during open gym hours, volleyball will be available on one side of the gym while basketball can still be enjoyed on the other side. Pickleball equipment is also available.

In addition, Professor Shawnee Bonnette will host yoga from 5-6 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays in KN 202. Cardio dance and yoga will be taught by Kate Burrill, who will rotate between the two each week from 1-2 p.m. Fridays in KN 202. 

Urbick said the fall semester intramurals schedule will be available soon, with Roy Moya coordinating the events. Urbick said she hopes for more student participation this year as the department adds more events.

Facilities and events are free for students and employees with a valid DMC ID. For more information, visit
