Recreation Center set to open soon

Associated Student, Inc. (ASI) still plans to open the new Recreation Center in mid-January, but don’t expect a grand revealing with a red carpet.

Mesrobian is working with other ASI students and staff to develop a strategy to release the information to students. ASI has plans in the works to make an announcement immediately prior to the center’s opening, she said. Despite the lack of an official date from ASI, facilities project manager Perry Judd said the building will be ready to occupy by Monday.

“It might be a couple days out,” Judd said. “It depends on how quick they get the water out.”
