Fees proposed for new UH rec center
By Erin Scoggan
When students come back to classes in Spring 2003, they will be greeted with a new $75 charge on their fee bills.
The fee is for the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, which opens in January.
A forum to discuss the fees with the UH community was held Wednesday at the University Center, and another will be held today at noon in Farish Hallis Kiva Room.
"Students are paying 80 percent of the bond (to build the center) with their student fees, so the facility is mostly for student use," said Director of Campus Recreation Kathy Anzivino.
The fee will also serve as membership dues for students.
Others with ties to UH, such as alumni and faculty and staff members, current or retired, are also able to use the Center, but for a higher fee than students (see box at right). Discounts will be available to those sponsored by a student.
All members must have a Cougar 1Card to get into the facility.
The center, which cost $53 million to build, is now considered the most
state-of-the art fitness center in Texas, Anzivino said.
