Wellness Center reopens after brief closing

POSTED MAY 1 AT 11:34 A.M.

The Wellness Center reopened at 6 a.m. today after a main water line broke Wednesday afternoon.

An e-mail sent out via e-Veritas Wednesday afternoon notified staff and students about the closing.

“The lack of water presents a health and safety hazard to Wellness Center members and guests,” the message said.

The closing only affected people wishing to use the facility for a few hours.

“I think it’s an inconvenience for those students who are looking for a study break,” Jill Farragher, a junior, said Wednesday. “But because it’s reopening tomorrow morning, that’s a really fast turnaround.”
