October is back! Bringing midterms, due dates, and truckloads of candy, October leaves me with all my favorite autumn foods and the tipping scales to prove it. After metaphorically flinging textbooks across the room, I find the best way to let off steam—and those extra pounds—is to head over to our Campus Recreation and Wellness Center (CRWC).
The CRWC opened in the summer of 2010 offering three floors of dedicated work out space. All floors have fitness equipment separated by weights, cardio, and stretching. Each area has floor to ceiling windows offering views of the city, the smaller campus park, or the Iowa River. With a 1/9 mile Jogging Track, two Basketball/Volleyball courts, a multi-purpose Gym, three Activity Rooms, 50-meter Competitive Natatorium, and many lounge/study areas, the CRWC has three key features that truly distinguish it from other campus recreation centers.
