ASI discusses plans for Rec Center
December 10, 2008 4:30 PM
Associated Students, Inc. members are working closely with a consulting firm to build a new student Recreation & Wellness Center, and a student survey with questions regarding the center has been answered by more than 1900 students.
“People are certainly responding well,” said a representative of the consulting team Brailsford & Dunleavy, a company working a report on the Wellness Center. “And with that kind of start we can count on a solid project.”
According to his presentation, there are two possible concepts for the project. One is a 120 thousand square feet comprehensive wellness center with activity rooms, a lounging area, gym and more. This project should cost around $86 million, he estimated, with student fees ranging from $150-160 per semester.
The other option is a focused recreation center–-about 84 thousand square feet, with costs around $56 million, and student fees of $85-$95 per semester.
The ASI board members also discussed a research project that’s goal is to find a proper sound level to be used by students in the Malcolm X Plaza during next semester. Since music was once again allowed in the quad, the decibel level of sound has been lowered from 95 to 85 decibels. They are now setting it to 65
According to Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Penny Saffold, since the sound level has lowered there has only been one complaint about student noise. Saffold added that the student center is looking to purchase a new and more appropriate sound system.
