Regardless of student status, all University of Connecticut students must pay an additional $500 annually, to offset construction costs for the new Recreational Center, according to University Communications Deputy Spokesperson, Mike Enright. Some UConn students however, have expressed contrasting views, bemoaning that the old Rec Center, though not Club Med standard, was satisfactory.
A rumor regarding a lice infestation at the university Rec Center is false, according to University of Connecticut Recreation Executive Director Cynthia Costanzo.
The rumor started in a post on the UConn Subreddit page on Tuesday. Costanzo said there has not been any kind of valid report of lice in any area of the recreation facility.
“No lice outbreak has been reported or observed,” Costanzo said.
Got some spare cash to burn? If so, then the ability to name the University of Connecticut Student Recreation Center can be yours—for a cool $25 million, donated to the UConn Foundation. For a slightly more affordable $1 million, you can name a 25 meter pool and for $10,000, you can name a conference room.
