West Campus students and employees are now keeping fit
with a full array of equipment including the treadmills students
Jessica Alexander and Quinn Will are using.
The West Campus recently introduced a new on-campus gym, featuring state-of-the-art
exercise machines, for all students and employees. Located in the former Associated
Student Government (ASG) office area, the gym has treadmills, an elliptical, an exercise
bike, a universal machine, full dumbbell set and a bench press set.
“Like many of the other facility-related projects of the past few years, the introduction of
the new gym serves as yet another example of the College’s recognition of the value of oncampus
exercise to a well-rounded student experience, which is in sync with the profession’s
focus on health and wellness, as well as an integral part of the Palmer educational
principles,” said West Campus Dean of Academic Affairs Thomas Souza, D.C.
“Past ASG President Kyle Alexander and his group of executive officers were instrumental
in providing the initial motivation and support,” said Dr. Souza. “The incoming ASG
team, led by new President JP Amonte, helped to advance the project in a smooth transition,
and our Facilities team, directed by Scott Tonnesen, are to be commended for their
assistance with the assembly and installation of the new equipment.”
