The Collegian Editorial Board is excited about the opening of the new facilities at the Recreation Center. Itâ€™s a miniature Water World without the toilet bowl ride.
However, weâ€™re not excited how long it took for the newly designed Rec Center to open up or the amount of gym-goers who will now pack the pool, making it next to impossible to actually swim â€¦ you know, what youâ€™re supposed to do at a pool.
So try to not spend too much time in the lazy river.
Despite the over-crowdeding, hereâ€™s what we are excited about â€¦ and what weâ€™re not:
- A climbing wall that extends out of the surface of the water. But really, how unattractive is that rock wall with people climbing in bathing suits? Thereâ€™s a reason we have clothes.
- The opportunity for some people to sport Speedos and bikinis. Just be mindful of whether or not you should be sporting one. Itâ€™s nothing to be ashamed of, most people canâ€™t.
- The lazy river. Though, weâ€™re not excited about obnoxious, drunk and stoned freshmen in the lazy river.
- To see the amazing new facilities. But youâ€™ll have to go see for yourself since we werenâ€™t permitted to take photos for you.
- Seeing our student fees are being put to use on something that students will surely enjoy. But we strongly encourage all freshmen to not ruin this new pool by peeing in it or being so drunk that they barf in it.
