Drayer Physical Therapy Institute will become the provider of physical therapy and athletic training services for University Recreation effective October 1, 2015. Drayer Physical Therapy will offer clinic hours of 8:00am-5:00pm Monday-Friday for physical therapy beginning Monday, October 5.

You are welcome to stop by the clinic located in the SRC anytime during open hours if you sustain an injury or have any questions! 

WORKOUT TOWEL SERVICE-We are pleased to continue to offer towel service at the SRC for workout needs. Our current rate of "lost" towels is much higher than we projected and are asking all to assist in keeping towel service a sustainable operation moving forward. Your safety, hygiene and maximizing the useful life of our equipment are directly related to this service. Please help us sustain this service by depositing used towels in the various yellow bins throughout the facility. Please further keep this service strong by only taking a workout towel when there is a legitimate need. This allows our cleaning schedules to better meet true demand.
