TPO 19 - Question 3

Fee Increase for Recreation Center Use

The university administration today announced a $25 increase in the student fee for using the campus recreation center. The higher fee, which all students are required to pay, will provide funds to upgrade the facility and provide newer, more modern exercise equipment at the center. "We expect the improvements to increase student use of the facility," explained David Smith, director of the student activities office. Mr. Smith also noted that the decision was approved because "we feel that $25 is a reasonable increase that will be affordable for individual students."
