The college has safety measures in place as required by statewide requirements for
higher education, including a cap on the number of users who can workout in the facility

CBC Director for Student Wellness Alex Thornton says, “It’s definitely an important
tool for both mental health and emotional well-being, and providing a space for them
to do that at no additional cost is definitely a great service.”
