New construction has displaced strength and conditioning students to the field house
While temporary, many students are feeling the effects in not only the strength and conditioning class, but also for sports that need the weight room

After the temporary closing of the weights room, students in strength and conditioning have been temporarily displaced to the field house.
For sophomore Nick Brubeck, the class has not seen a major impact from the construction so far, but he expects that to change.
I [think the construction]… will overall cause more [problems]

I don’t think the construction has affected our weights class that much yet, but I [think the construction]… will overall cause more [problems],” Brubeck said.
Although the inconvenience has been manageable so far, come winter time Brubeck expects the weight room situation to be much worse for students.
“Once it gets colder it will cause more challenges,” Brubeck said. “Getting into the weight room when it’s freezing will be tough and keeping the room warm will be [difficult].”
In addition to affecting the class, Brubeck feels many sports such as volleyball and basketball are suffering from the lack of a suitable weight room to accommodate everyone.
“For soccer, we haven’t really been affected,” Brubeck said. “But I bet volleyball and basketball … practices will be harder to get scheduled.”
Although the inconvenience is only expected to get worse, Brubeck is still excited about what the new construction’s completion will mean for the school.
“In the long run, the new construction … will be worth it because … [it] will cause more good opportunities than minor setbacks,” Brubeck said.
