Student Activity Center


At the Robert M. McChesney Student Activity Center (SAC), you’ll find a weight room furnished with numerous machines, free weights and other equipment to stimulate your workout, a state-of-the-art natatorium for serious swimming, and courts for racquetball and walleyball.

If you need some assistance with your training regimen, personal trainers are available in the morning and the evening during the week. And if you’d rather put together a pick-up game or just shoot around, there are basketball courts located both in Myrick Gym and Bibb Graves Hall.
