About Us:

The L.I.F.E. Program is an integral part of the Department of Kinesiology's efforts to enrich the lives of people in our community. The Department of Kinesiology keeps this program open for faculty, staff, students, and community members who wish to utilize on-campus exercise spaces. The facilities that the L.I.F.E. Program makes available to community members are the Ahearn Field House and gymnasiums, the Natatorium, the weight room (room 7), the locker rooms, and our Life Fitness Center (room 4). These spaces are overseen by the  L.I.F.E. Project Coordinator. Members of the L.I.F.E. Program have access to these areas (with exception to the Natatorium) during our regular operating hours.
