The E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center opened on Monday, Jan. 25. Please help us Protect the Pack by reviewing and respecting our mitigation efforts and protocols to stay open. Building capacity is limited to 25%. You can find live building capacity numbers online. Check before you come.

Our team has done an amazing job preparing E. L.

The FRS staff will continue to work hard during the semester rotating throughout the facility, sanitizing equipment and enforcing policy.

Please do your part to help us stay open. Wear your mask, sanitize what you touch and please wash your hands. We appreciate your patience and understanding. If you arrive during one of our scheduled shutdowns and/or the building is at capacity, please remain social distanced.
