Students pay an ADDITIONAL $175 per semester as well as the assessed fee for construction? Some bargain for the financially strapped student. I guess the parking situation Chuck was concerned about might not really be an issue. It looks like it might have been cheaper in the long run to vote against the construction and let private enterprise provide those services.

Low flow showerheads? Do they really save water when you need to take longer in the shower to rinse?

And talk about discrimination, how come the men get waterless urinals when the woment can still flush?

Stan,

As a student, the body voted for it to happen. Private sector fitness clubs are just too expensive and far from campus which prevents financial aide students to afford them. Parking isn't an issue with it being on campus and students living within bus, bike, and walking distance.

A fitter student body is more likely to be active in sports and especially in the classroom.

Are you kidding me??? There are plenty of students that feel ripped off about this fee $$$$. Many students want to get away and get out into the community away from the campus. Parking will be an issue as it always has been. Because if they choose to park in the campus parking garage they still have to pay for a permit to park.

As a student at CSUC, I don't have time or the extra money to support the minority.

I voted for this when I was an undergraduate. It was my hope that the memberships would be extended to Alumi of CSUC (like Cal Poly does). When I was a student, I began paying for programs that were voted in long before I was there.

$175 is about $40 a month, which is expensive for a health club membership. I'm sure there are a lot of students who prefer to jog or do something else for exercise, why should they pay for a membership they don't want.

Because it was voted in by a fraction of the student body (those who bothered to vote and it wouldn't affect them anyway). When this was voted in - we were not in the economic downturn we are in now. I am confident that the students would rather have their fees and tuition reduced by $175 a semester or use the money for books than a gym membership that few will use.
