Dear Members of the Oswego Campus Community,

I am pleased to announce that in an effort to provide a safe, spacious place for the campus community to engage in physical activity, I have authorized the use of the Marano Campus Center Arena as a temporary fitness center for students and employees. The newly located fitness center will open tomorrow, Feb. 23 The staff are completing the set-up today and finalizing important cleaning protocols and distancing guidelines.  The arena in MCC provides a large, open place for all Lakers to exercise while offering many of the same equipment options that were found in Cooper and Glimmerglass.  In addition, group exercise classes will be offered and the upper concourse will be available to walk or jog.  

As a precursor to Wellness Day -- Wednesday, Feb. 24 -- we are offering students, faculty and staff the opportunity to stop by and use the new fitness center space for free between Feb 23-26. Fitness Center staff are excited to see you again.  To learn more about the hours of operation, membership/reduced rates, new safety protocols and other services available, please visit the #I am Oswego Fit website.  If you have any questions, please email fitness@oswego.edu.  

Please remember that all students (on-campus and off-campus) and employees who choose to use the fitness center will be required to get tested weekly and show verification that they have tested and received a YES badge.
