Dean Bethune Responds to Questions about the Fitness Room for Resident Students

I want to respond to questions I have heard from students as to why the small fitness facility in the new building is not open to all students.  This fitness facility, like the fitness facility in the Commonwealth Avenue residence hall, is limited to resident students since they pay extra to live on campus.  Last semester, we replaced much of the equipment in the Commonwealth Avenue fitness room. The cost of the residence hall is born not by all students and the tuition they pay, but by the room and board fees paid by those who are living in student housing.
