ORANGEBURG, N.Y. -- The Hennesy Center at Dominican College has gotten a facelift.
The college unveiled the $5 million expansion this week. It includes a new lower level with a state-of-the-art fitness center.
The new fitness center is about four times larger than the former fitness room and has 30 pieces of cardio equipment- compared to six in the old room. There is also an aerobics room with bikes for spin classes.
“I think our teams are going to be fitter and in better shape," V.P. of Student Development John Burke said. "For coaches who are recruiting, the new fitness center is a huge advantage.”
The expansion includes a new, regulation-size NCAA gym on the same level as the current gym, which will allow for more intramural sports and “open gym” time for the general student population. There are also new coaches’ offices, a new recruiting room/conference area and an athletic training area with two whirlpools.
The annual fee for the general public to use the gym is $300.
