The academic program is enhanced by access to facilities in the Royce and Pam Money Student Recreation and Wellness Center, where the department is housed. These facilities serve as both a laboratory for majors and a recreation/fitness facility for the entire campus. There are two classrooms in the Center in addition to five classrooms in the Gibson Health and Physical Education Center. The Human Performance Laboratory (HPL) is a resource for our majors to learn to analyze body composition, cardiovascular function, blood chemistry, respiratory function, muscular strength, and flexibility. These analyses are also available for faculty, staff, and students who wish to assess their personal health by using state-of-the-art technology, such as the BodPod and the new Parvo metabolic measurement system. Computer assisted nutritional analysis, stress profiles, and personal evaluations are available in the HPL. The Nutrition program has a food science laboratory in the Sherrod Building.
Recreational and fitness facilities include four gyms for court games; three racquetball courts; two group exercise areas; a large exercise area with strength training equipment, stair climbers, elliptical machines, and treadmills for aerobic workouts; a free-weight area; two indoor swimming pools; and men's and women's dressing rooms. Lighted tennis courts are adjacent to the Center.
