Why are faculty, staff, alumni, and retirees charged to use the Student Recreation Center?
Student fees are the primary funding source for both the construction and ongoing operations of the Student Recreation Center. The philosophy behind the fee is that all who use the facilities should help pay for its operations.
Membership prices for employees, alumni, and retirees are comparable to the $85/semester full-time students pay through their student fees.
Do students need to buy a membership to use the Student Recreation Center?
Students support the funding of the Student Recreation Center directly through their student fees.
