Shades and Fans in "The Pulse" Group Fitness Room

  • Install manual or remote controlled window shades in the group fitness room in DBAC's "The Pulse" area.
  • Place easily movable floor fans and/or ceiling fans in the same room.
  • This room is subject to a huge greenhouse effect, impacting the comfort and safety of group fitness attendees, particularly on sunny days in the summer, making exercising unbearable.
  • Large windows also mean that there is no privacy during group fitness classes

  • March 2017, students approved a significant expansion and improvement of campus activity and athletic space. The new Student Activity Building will include space for all students, providing study and lounge space, a multi-faith area, a small grocery store and rooms for events and meetings.  The plan also calls for the expansion of the Pulse fitness area including upgrade features such as consideration of fans and shades for the space.
