Hello students,

Stressed due to finals?

Well…Zumba will be happening for one last week this Wednesday, May 18th (tomorrow) at 4:45pm in the upper gym of the Schwartz. This will be a great way to get your body to release some endorphins to help you get through finals week. Anybody new can attend and it is only a $6 session. It would be great to get more students to come!

Also, we are also in desperate need of lifeguards for reunion weekend which is June 3rd and 4th if any certified seniors want to stick around and make some money. Room and board is also included. Please contact me or Trish George (pgeorge@wells.edu) for more information as soon as you can.

Fitness center hours during finals week are Monday- Friday 7-9am, 11am-2pm, and 5-8pm. Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd, 11am-2pm and 5-8pm only.
