The Hennessy Center for Student Life is a major hub of student activity. It houses a 10,000 square-foot gymnasium, running track, fitness center, training and locker rooms, as well as facilities for meetings and conferences. The Center hosts intercollegiate athletic contests, open recreation, and student events; when time permits, it is also available for various community functions. There is no charge to students and faculty for the use of the facility. Regulations and procedures for usage are distributed and must be rigorously observed in order to keep the facility in good order. Hours are posted at the front desk and distributed throughout the campus.
