The second and third floors of the HU Student Center will have more foot traffic. And they will be happy feet, no doubt, since the re-opening of the HU Fitness Center in February.
After it closed in December, between 80 and 100 students graced the facility for the Feb. 4 re-opening, said Recreation Specialist Boyd Jamison.
Flyers were posted in the Student Center to announce the re- opening, but passersby and word of mouth spread the news even faster, Jamison said.
"Some people kind of walked by and said, 'Oh, I didn't know you were open,'" he said.
Treadmills, dumbbells, stationary bicycles, weights, stair master machines and more are available, along with an indoor track on the third floor. Hours for the center are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m. to 6 pm., and Sunday 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"Fair is foul, and foul is fair" as Hampton University's Department of Fine and Performing Arts and the HU Players and Company proudly present "MacBeth" at HU's Little Theatre in Armstrong Hall. The musical will run March 20-22 at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on March 23 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, children and students and admission for HU students is free.
Known as one of Shakespeare's masterpieces of tragedy, "MacBeth" is a frightening and astonishing insight into the human passion for political and military power, as well as consequences of corrupting ambition unchecked by morality or conscience. This is a thriller not to be missed!
