UMW Fitness Center Fees: New Development

The following message is from the Vice President for Student Affairs

Dear UMW Faculty and Staff:

I appreciate that many of you have shared your thoughts and feedback with me about the plan to introduce faculty and staff memberships to the UMW Fitness Center that would require a fee. After assessing your insight and talking with my Campus Recreation colleagues, we will continue to offer use of the Fitness Center at no charge for faculty and staff while we continue to gather more information and feedback from you during the coming semester. Until resource needs are determined, the expanded hours, services, and programming are under review. Meanwhile, the Fitness Center will open on weekdays at 7 a.m. until further notice.

We still plan to hold the RecFest Open House tomorrow, Wednesday, August 17 from 10 a.m. to noon, and from 4 to 6 p.m.  We hope to see you there!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
