With a recent donation from a former graduate and basketball player for the Britons, the Dow Recreation and Wellness Center experienced a recent makeover and some much needed growth. The “Serra Dow Expansion Project” aims to transform the lives of students, staff, and faculty with a main purpose to be inclusive for all.
The recreation and wellness center holds various areas that are hyper-focused on providing a holistic environment that promotes a fit lifestyle. From a cardio and fitness center to a study lounge, conference room space, and a smoothie bar with nutritious foods, the expansion project helps create a more engaged campus.
The expansion revolves around an enhanced entry and lobby space that serves both the wellness center and the Herrick Theater. As the facility has centered around mind, body, and wellness, it holds a great value in its cardio and fitness center. The fitness center features squat racks, free weights, weight machines, and cardio equipment such as treadmills.
The nutrition bar provides a nutritious and healthy place to enjoy smoothies and other foods. There’s ample amount of study space inside the Dow, which there are specifically pods found within the Center that are set up for a great learning environment.
The multi-purpose space was designed to create a wide-open space for various types of fitness activity and programming, dance and theater classes.
Other rooms that this facility entails are men’s and women’s locker rooms, conference rooms for meetings and study sessions, and an athletic director’s office.
