Campus Recreation Center adds new equipment, makes facility improvements

To ring in the new year, Augusta University Campus Recreation has made some big updates.

Over the holiday break, the Campus Recreation Center overhauled its weight room, replacing older equipment with new pieces. The facility has repainted both basketball courts and added two exercise bikes and a stair-stepper to its second-floor cardio space.

The facility also has new equipment available for checkout, including mountain bikes and a trailer that fits up to 10 bikes or 16 kayaks.

“AU Campus Recreation is excited to have students back and we can’t wait for them to check out our new equipment and facility improvements. These additions and improvements will provide students fun, new ways to stay active in 2022,” said Trey Harrison, director of Campus Recreation.

“Whether it be working out in the Campus Recreation Center, bike riding on a local trail, or paddling down the canal, we’ve got AU students covered. We hope they’ll come take advantage of all the opportunities.”

All of the recent changes are made thanks to student input. Many students had requested that the center replace old fitness equipment, add new pieces of equipment and offer mountain bikes for use on local trails.
