S&T digs into fitness center expansion

Work is underway on a 10,200-square-foot expansion of S&T’s fitness center in the Gale Bullman Building.

The expansion will more than double the number of exercise machines and will include a multipurpose exercise room as well as new equipment flooring, wall coverings, sound system and a more efficient single entrance point. The center will also house more weight training equipment on the main level and additional cardio equipment on the expanded mezzanine level.

In 2015, students told Student Council leaders their No. 1 priority was updating the fitness center, and in 2016, they voted to direct a portion of their student recreation fee to make the expansion a reality. Student leaders and university officials broke ground in April. The project is expected to open in April 2019.
